Other challenges facing education in Kenya include the following:
1. Interference with school administration by parents
- Some parents interfere greatly with the core administration of schools and this negatively impacts on delivering core duties by teachers.
2. Low number of teachers in most public schools.
- Since the introduction of free primary education, many students have been enrolling at public schools year in year out. On the other hand, the government has not been hiring adequate number of teachers to take care of the rising number of students.
3. Insecurity in some regions.
- In Kenya, there are areas which are faced with increasing number of insecurities. Students find it hard to attend all classes for fear of being attacked.
4. Lack of adequate lighting in some rural schools.
- Some schools in Kenya, especially rural schools do not have source of lighting as they are not yet connected to electricity. This interferes with learning since students are not able to attend evening classes or even use computers.
5. Lack of core school facilities such as class rooms, tables, chairs e.t.c.
- These facilities are either missing or inadequate in some schools. There are even some schools where students take studies under trees.
6. Lack of teaching morale on the side of teachers.
- In many public schools, teachers are not motivated and this breaks their morale in teaching hence poor performance in national examinations.
7. Lack of enough material support from parents.
- Many parents have the misconception that free primary educations means that everything in school is free. They even do not buy books for the students and argue that everything is for free in school.
8. Drug abuse.
- Some students get involved in drugs and this negatively impacts on their performance in national examinations.
