World Bank raises alarm on Kenya’s ‘half-baked’ graduates
The World Bank has raised concerns on the quality of graduates being produced by universities and colleges in Kenya.
The bank observes that the country’s education system is failing to produce graduates with the knowledge and skills crucial for Vision 2030, in its report dated September 2015.
The report is dubbed “Kenya’s Education Achievement and Challenges”.
“Several deep-rooted issues continue to obstruct these desired outcomes,” said the report that was handed over to Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang last week.
The report comes in the wake of the suspension of a number of courses by professional bodies, such as the Council of Legal Education and Engineers Board.
Several law and engineering courses have been suspended due to the failure by universities to observe minimum requirements in offering them.
