Financing Of Physical Facilities In Public Secondary Schools: An Investigation Into The Role Of Kenya's Constituency Development Fund, Lugari Constituency, Kakamega County

ABSTRACT

The general objective of this study was to investigate the role played by CDF in funding

public secondary schools' physical projects within Lugari Constituency. Specific

objectives of the study were: to determine the effect ofCDF funding on physical projects

in public secondary schools; to establish the role of the school administrators on CDF

funded physical facilities in the public secondary schools; and to establish the challenges

facing the effective implementation of the CDF funded physical projects in the public

secondary schools in Lugari Constituency.

Literature review focused on an overview of the CDF programme and the history of

education in Kenya. The study used a descriptive survey design. The study targeted 46

public secondary schools. Purposive sampling technique was employed to select 14

public secondary schools to participate in the study, representing a sample of 30.43

percent. Questionnaires were used as the main tools for data collection. Results of the

study were analyzed using descriptive statistical techniques such as percentages and

frequency distribution tables.

The study established that the PT A funded most of the projects in schools, as opposed to

CDF. Despite the fact that CDF was inadequate, it was established that it caused an

increase in the number of facilities in schools, though not by a big margin. The study

further revealed that most of the principals had attended CDF workshops, which enabled

them to be involved in project implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Challenges

that faced the effective implementation of CDF-funded projects were: interference from

local politicians in the running of CDF committees and corruption. The study

recommends that: all schools should be given an equal chance to CDF funds; CDF team

should help in sensitizing the community on the need to continue supporting schools

development morally, materially and financially; further CDF funding should not be

politicized but address needs of various schools and the most needy being given more

allocation and attention among other recommendations.
