ABSTRACT

The essence of' high achievement in Education can not be over emphasized. A

citizen of' the modem world needs a level of' literacy that would make one a

usef'ul and meaningful member of' the society. This is because it helped in

national development and individual self'-f'ulfillment. Despite the government

of' Kenya and other stakeholders effort to achieve parity conditions in

education participation country wide, there still exist remarkable imbalance

especially in the rural areas and particularly in some communities where

cultural values strongly persist. This also applies f'or the people that live in

Kapropita sub zone. Cases of' school drop out are becoming alarming in this

zone and have posed a lot of' concern both to the community and the

government. The purpose of' the study was to determine the home based

!'actors that contributed to the school drop out in the zone. Survey research

design was used because it sought to determine and report things as they

were. Random sampling was used to select BO out of' :1.20 schools dropouts

f'rom the six primary schools of' Kapropita sub zone. Purposive sampling was

used to select the six primary school head teachers, local chief's, councilors and

all the University students and graduates f'rom the community. The research

instruments to be used were a questionnaire and interview schedules. Piloting

was done in one school where the study was to be conducted. The data

obtained was analyzed using qualitative and quantitative methods. Using

quantitative method, means, averages, percentages and f'requencies would be

coJTUpted. A qualitative analysis technique was used where the f'requency of'

responses obtained using the interview schedules and f'ocused group

discussion guides were obtained. This study is expected to help the community

living in this zone and encourage them to take education of' their children

seriously. It is also expected to guide locally established Non-governmental

Organizations such as World Vision International and other groups like

schools, parents and the government in understanding the need to come

together and help promote standard of' education in this sub zone of' Kapropim

also to help learners who are able to access education to get it; pursue and complete primary, secondary and even Unl'versity education where possible.
