Education is intimately associated with social and economic and political development in any nation. In Kenya's pre-independence education was provided within the context of social and economic organization. Colonial education system was exclusive and organized along racial lines with the few Africans receiving an education conceived to be inferior. The enthusiasm for education increased tremendously after independence which led to phenomenal growth in education at all levels. In pre-colonial process of education, moral and ethical values were known and accepted as a way of life by all. Democratic practices of Government, justice and co-curricular activities were imparted to the society on an informal basis. The mode of delivery involved practical application of new knowledge in a real life situation. This inclusive process of education was, however, disrupted by the colonial government through the segregated education system.
