dc.identifier.citationPrewitt, Kenneth. (1972) Education and social equality in Kenya. Discussion Paper 157, Nairobi: Institute for Development Studies, University of Nairobien_GB
dc.description.abstractThis paper develops the premise that schools are simultaneously involved in defining and justifying both systems of stratification and ideals and practices of egalitarianism. It argues that this apparent paradox is resolved in the notion of meritocratic selection and then draws on varied Kenyan data to assess the extent to which the notion is both a practical reality and an article of national policy.en_GB
