Government’s priority is in ensuring that quality is at the core of all education programmes. Quality education assures sustainable acquisition of knowledge, be it intellectual or practical capable of developing the individual and contributes to national and global development. The process of providing quality education begins with proper planning for financial, human and physical resources and curriculum. This involves all the stakeholders and it is incorporated in the teaching/learning process. The focus on education quality is normally at the heart of efforts aimed at improving the performance of education sectors. Quality is what attracts learners, satisfies their basic learning needs, and enriches their life and their overall experience of living. Governments and all other partners must work together to ensure quality of education for all, regardless of gender, wealth, location, language, ethnic, social or cultural origin. There has been much effort in expanding basic education in the Kenya. The achievements made especially with regard to making basic education access to the population at all places are very significant. However, the issue of quality in education still remains a crucial concern of the ministries of education.
