1 MONITORING AND MEASURING PROGRESS IN EDUCATION FOR ALL (EFA) SINCE DAKAR: NATIONAL ASSESSMENT IN KENYA Paper Presented by HON. AMB. PROF SAM K. ONGERI, EGH, MP MINISTER FOR EDUCATION KENYA Tuesday 13 th September, 2011 Mombasa Continental Resort Kenya

2 Introduction World Conference on Education held in Jomtien, Thailand in 1990 and Dakar 2000 Governments resolved to provide equitable and quality education to the entire population Six goals and targets were set to be achieved by the target year 2015 2

3 Introduction Cont EFA Global Monitoring Reports have indicated that many countries particularly sub- Saharan Africa and some countries in the Asia Pacific region may be at the risk of not attaining the EFA targets by 2015 Sharing of experiences among countries in development of strategies to meet EFA in the remaining year until 2015 is considered critical 3

4 Introduction Hence the organization of this meeting-The Eastern Africa HL Forum on EFA which is the first meeting of its kind in the region The need to measure and monitor progress of all EFA goals cannot be overemphasized - it helps to guide in developing focused policies for targeted interventions 4

5 Kenyas Initiatives for monitoring progress in attainment of EFA, since Dakar In 2001, Kenya developed a national action plan on EFA –the Kenyas EFA handbook (2001) which articulated issues and strategies of achieving EFA goals In 2005, Kenya developed a Sessional Paper No. 1 on a Policy Framework for Education, Training and Research which provides strategies for the attainment of EFA by 2015. 5

6 Initiatives Cont The Kenya Education Sector Support Programme (KESSP) 2005-2010 was prepared in pursuit of the Millennium Development goals (MDGs) and Education for All, and coordinated through a Sector wide Approach (SWAP). The programme has an inbuilt monitoring system KESSP prioritized twenty three (23) investment programme areas to ensure delivery of quality education and address relevant issues from other sectors which may jeopardize the provision of education to all. 6

10 Kenya EFA End-Decade Assessment (EDA) Kenya launched EFA EDA in May 2010 and process is successfully completed. A draft report has been produced (copies of executive summary distributed) The National EFA EDA was primarily aimed at: Capacity building Assessing the progress made on Education For all Goals since 2000 10

11 Kenya EFA EDA Process Cont Specific objectives were to: i.review progress made in EFA interventions since 2000; ii.identify challenges in the implementation of EFA commitments; iii.take a closer look at the issue of the unreached/marginalized populations; and iv.recommend appropriate interventions to enhance achieving EFA goals by 2015. 11

12 Kenya EFA EDA Process Cont Ministry of Education constituted a technical team drawn from line Ministries implementing related education programmes, civil society, NGOs as well as the development partners Formed a Steering Committee made of permanent secretaries and senior officers from these organizations to oversee the process The assessment process is currently on going in a few Eastern Africa countries (Uganda, Eritrea, and Rwanda). 12

13 Core Indicators Evaluated Kenya team identified 51 core indicators to be evaluated from the original 18 Goal 1. ECCE 7 ( additional 4) Goal 2. UBE 11 (additional 2) Goal 3. LIFE SKILLS 7 (additional 6 Goal 4. LITERACY 4 (additional 1) Goal 5. GENDER 10 (additional 7) Goal 6. QUALITY 12 (additional 4) 13

14 Some Key Findings Enrolment and participation rates have increased at all levels due to various interventions(i.e. FPE, FDSE) Near gender parity at primary and secondary school levels. Increased opportunities for life skills and lifelong learning(TIVET, peace education…). 14

15 Increase in enrolment in pre-primary, primary and secondary between 2000 and 2010 from 1.3m to 2.2m, 6.2 m to 9.4 m and 0.8 m to 1.7 m by 76%, 52%, 114% respectively 15

16 Higher participation at preprimary, primary and secondary education levels, improved GER from 44.8% to 60.9%, 92.7% to 109.8% and 25.5% to 47.8% in 2000 and 2010 respectively. 16

17 Improved NER and hence less school going age population to stand at 41.8%, preprimary, 91.4%, primary and 32.0 % in secondary in 2010 17

18 Challenges Existence of out of school children Regional disparities Quality and relevance of education is still a concern Inadequate resources Lack of comprehensive data 18

19 WAY FORWARD 1.Finalize the report 2.Present report to Steering Committee for adoption 3.Present findings to stakeholders 4.Publish final report and widely disseminate findings 5.Draw up a road map to 2015 and beyond 19
