Low Cost Private Schools: School Choice for the poor at the expense of Quality?
A compendium on economic and social rights cases under the Constitution of Kenya, 2010
Poverty, inequality, socio-economic marginalisation and poor human development, are challenges that have bedevilled Kenya
for a long time. The government has projected that, approximately 46-56 per cent of Kenyans are living below the poverty
line, 1 though non-governmental organisations argue that this is an understatement and that, the more correct approximation
is about 56-65 per cent of Kenyans are living below the poverty line. 2 The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in
their annual Human Development Index (HDI) have consistently ranked Kenya as a low human development country, with the
country being ranked at position 145 among the 186 ranked countries of the world in 2013.

EACHRights Perception Survey Report
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those that took part in this survey and thereby making it a success. I begin with the respondents from government and civil society that filled the questionnaires. I also wish to thank all those members of the civil society and the public as a whole that took time to participate in the Focus Group Discussions (FGD). Indeed, the combined knowledge and experience of all these people provided invaluable information that contributed to the findings of the survey and for that I am very grateful. Download
