Learners Absenteeism And How It Influences Their Academic Progress, A Case Study Of Selected Primary Schools In Kabarnet Division, Baringo District, Kenya

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this research was to investigate the influence

on learner's absenteeism on their academic progress in

Kabarnet division, Baringo district in Kenya.

The following objectives guided the study; to establish the

prevalence and causes of absenteeism, to establish the

relationship between absenteeism and poor academic

performance and to find out if absenteeism affects the

children's retention in school. The respondents were teachers

since they were the people with first hand information about

the learners. A questionnaire was used to carry out this

investigation. Finding of the study showed that absenteeism

was rampant in school and the causes were both home based

and school based factors, and that some learners performed

poorly because of absenteeism and in some cases they

dropped out of school. It was recommended that teachers

change their attitude towards their learners and make learning interesting. They should also counsel the learners.
