ABSTRACT The background of the study and the development of poverty profile in the world narrowed to the developing world and then to Kenya. It also gives enrolment record of NSS from 1996 to 2006. Also indicated are the school fees arrears for the same period of time. The literature review demonstrates the overview of research on poverty as done by various scholars and organizations. This clearly indicates the inter relationship between factors affecting school enrolment and are associated with poverty. Structured questionnaires targeting parents and students were distributed through systematic random sampling. The researcher used non probability approach to select the parents. Data from the accounts clerk was obtained through an interview by appointment. Descriptive statistics such as tables and discussion methods were used to present the findings as per the objectives of the study. Poverty was reported to have a major negative effect in MPS which is finally reflected in the society and affect the nation as a whole. The study found out that poor attendance in class, time wastage by the students as they go out to look for fees, high cost of education and Jack of very little government participation in the community are the main causes of low enrolment in MPS. The study recommends that the enrolment can be improved in MPS by increased allocation of bursaries to the poor students in the community, Government involvement in reducing the cost of education, community participation in initiating viable income generating activities to boost their earnings e.g. commercial farming programmes in cotton, cabbage and other vegetables and involvement in communal self help groups.
