Policy Brief PAL Network cover

Although progress has been made towards equity and inclusion in education reforms in Kenya, some gaps remain especially among girls, learners with special needs, learners from low-income households, and other marginalised groups, with the COVID-19 pandemic magnifying these gaps. 

In this Policy Brief, People’s Action for Learning presents an overview of the six Policy Dialogues on education in Kenya held in the past 2 years, and offers the following recommendations to enhance equality and inclusion for all learners:

  • Increase teacher capacity and improve teacher-pupil ratio 
  • Enhance capacities of schools to cater to learners with special needs 
  • Strengthen schools as safety nets for learners with some special needs and disability  
  • Provision for neurodiverse learners 
  • Increase and rationalise resources 
  • Expanding inclusion of children in marginalised areas 
  • Expanding inclusion through Community-Based Learning (CBL) and Home-schooling 
  • Ensuring continuity of learning for all children 
  • Revisit equity and inclusion in the school deboarding debate
