World over, education is regarded as a major engine behind development. In Kenya, rapid expansion of education and the consequent recruitment of teachers by the Board of Governors have played a crucial role in steering the country towards development of crucial manpower required in different sectors of the economy. Like any market economy, recruitment of teachers in Kenyan secondary schools is demand driven and schools’ Board of Governors take a centre stage. The book presents findings on the effectiveness of Board of Governors in the recruitment of teachers in public secondary schools in Gucha District, Kenya. This book will be invaluable material to education planners, donors and teacher employers. Students and consultants in the field of education will find this book useful as well.
