It also categorized them on the basis of church sponsors which were Catholic Church, Anglican Church of Kenya, Presbyterian Church of East Africa and Salvation Army. 18 (51%) schools were sampled from which, the BoG chairpersons (18), principals (18), and 3 teachers per school (54) were selected to fill in the questionnaires.
