Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This report is written for the purpose to find out about the school system in Kenya and what has influent today’s system. I will also write about the difference between public and private school and equality. I will base this research upon the Bronfenbrenner theory to see how street children can adjust in school and institutions; I will also write what institutions do for these children.
The conclusion of this report is when Kenya implemented the 8-4-4 system from U.S they thought it would increase dropouts but instead it had gotten a lot if critics. Children who live on the street have gotten an attitude so when they are put in a school, they have difficulty to adjust and instead they might drop out. The schools are starting to be equal, but girls still drops out because they are needed at home. The difference between private and public schools is big, the classes are much smaller and books are not always enough for each pupil in public schools. Teachers in public schools have 70-80 pupils in one class.
