performance of learners in selected schools of Emining, Nata, Radad, Kimose, Chepnyorgin

the girls and boys in Emining Division, Koibatek District. The methods used for data collection

were face to face interview, which were carried on with parents, Questionnaires were

distributed to students and teachers. Observation was done on the state of the learners. The

findings revealed by 70% of the respondents that gender issues affect the performance of the

schools are boys. According to 70% of the respondents most of the schools had gender biasness

in all the resources used by the learners. 80% of the respondents revealed that poverty has

that, the government should step in to see that all children are taken to school both girls and

boys. The parents and the community should be sensitized on the importance of educating all

their children both boys and girls. The government non-government organizations, publishers

and curriculum developers should work hand in hand to produce gender sensitive books, which

will change the attitude and stereotype thinking.
