APPENDIX I: INTERVIEW GUIDE; .................................................................................. .45

ABSTRACT The major objective of this study was to examine the implementation process of Education Decentralization specifically in view of having the required institutions, and their performance, the level and nature of participation of the community, the financial resources made available and its adequacy. To meet the above objective concerned authorities, professionals and community members have been interviewed. Data for the research was collected from Secondary sources with the help of interview guides, unstructured questionnaire and focus group discussion guides. Secondary sources were equally reviewed. The study was conducted in Nyamira District in the Eastern part of the country. The study found out, among other things, that Kenya Education Decentralization gave the mandate for responsibilities like: opening schools; recruit, promote, discipline and dismiss teachers and other educational professionals; procure and distribute sc.hool provisions without prior approval of ministry of education. The study found that the power_ devolved is adequate to undertake the responsibilities of expanding Basic Education. But the relationship between the Nyamira Distr!ct Education office and that of schools is mostly characterized by a top-down hierarchical relationship. In Nyamira District Education and schools level there is manpower problem in terms of having the relevant capacity to undertake the responsibilities and bring change in Edu?ation Decentralization. There is acute budget shortage principally capital budget which is reflected in shortage of school infrastructure, provisions and manpower shortage and as a result a tendency of exercising much reliance on the community beyond it can afford to tolerate is observed. It was generally recommended that for Education Decentralization to succeed there is a need to address the capacity of all those involved from District Education office to the level of schools and equally the budget constraint must be solved if education should serve as a basis for all forms of development.
