A CASE FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION IN PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Over 844,475 candidates sat for KCPE in 2013 and 647,602 joined secondary schools in 2014 making a maximum transition rate of 76.7 %.  This compares unfavourably with the 1970 decade when it reached 95%. One explanation may be that while primary school population is growing at geometrical rates, secondary schools to absorb it are growing at mathematical rates.  Fingers may be pointed at the country’s educational infrastructure planners. Another explanation could be that there are inadequate incentives for the private sector full involvement. The fact that private schools’ candidates are differently treated at secondary school selections may add insult to injury. However let this be another day’s story.

MY KENYA IN 100 YEARS

INTRODUCTION: KENYA AND THE THEORY OF THREE

First things first – what is a theory? Etymology says that the word theory was derived from Ancient Greek philosophy – theoria - meaning "a looking at, viewing, beholding", and referring to contemplation or speculation. The word has grown to mean different things, depending on the context. For laypeople, a theory is simply an idea. Some people use “theory” like “hypothesis,” positing an idea which needs to be tested. It is common for laypeople to dismiss an idea as “just a theory,” with the implication that it cannot be proven.

CALL FOR PROJECT PARTNERSHIP

BUNGOMA 4F + 1F project By Prof. Henry M. Bwisa ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )

Kenya, through her Vision 2030, envisions to industrialize by that year. As a contribution to this national strategy Prof. Bwisa designed a model through which rural Kenya can contribute to industrialization and named it “cluster approach to industrialization”.  His proposal to do applied research to implement the model won a research award by the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology in Kenya. A demonstration plot has been set up in Bungoma County.  The focus of the model is on oil crops. Farmers have been contracted to grow sunflower to be manually pressed into vegetable oil (with less cholesterol than oils on the market) which will be sold to institutions and the public. The oil could also be used to make soap. The cake that remains after processing will be processed into animal and fish feed. That then means that some farmers will be encouraged to venture into dry land fish farming. The technology to harvest roof and run-off rain water to fill the ponds has been put in place. When rain water to fill the pond is exhausted need arises to use tap water yet chlorine in tap water is harmful to fish. A de-chlorination tank has been constructed to solve this problem.
