The study also was intended to find out causes of gender disparities and try to find out ways of curbing these disparities. The research was carried out in Kaptagat zone, Ainabkoi division of Uasin Gishu district. There are thirty three schools in the zone and the research was carried out in four of these schools. The findings from the four schools reflected the situations in the whole zone. Simple random sampling was used to arrive at the target population. Questionnaires were used on various respondents; head teachers, teachers and pupils to collect the data. The results were analyzed using simple tables showing frequencies and percentages. The findings showed areas where disparities occur as performance, enrolment, school dropout, classroom interaction and school facilities and resources from the respondents. It was found out that the causes of gender disparities were poverty, early pregnancies, lack of parents and teachers motivation, cultural practices, peer influence, lack of role models and gender stereotyped resources. To curb these problems, guidance and counseling could be conducted, use of role models, sensitize on gender balance and redistribution of tasks to both gender. What could be recommended form findings is to sensitize onto stakeholders on gender balance. Use of role models, creating friendly environment both at home and school and running insets.
