Education is a human right that straddles the division between civil and political rights on the one hand, and economic, social and cultural rights on the other. The Kenya government introduced free primary education in early 2003 enabling many children who were out of school an opportunity to access basic education. However, the state''s provision of free primary education needs constant assessment. This is necessary in order to ensure education is not only free, but of high standards and, that it is available to all. This book therefore highlights the successes and the challenges facing the implementation of the free primary education policy in Kenya. It is especially useful to proffessionals in education, the policy makers and the governments at large.
