A decade after the free primary education policy was introduced in Kenya, the programme has increased enrollment nationally but many private schools are still present, even in very poor areas, pointing to issues regarding quality of public schools and raises questions if free primary education is actually free.

But the required funds have not been allocated to the schools: Ministry of Education records from 2009 show there were 170,000 teachers in charge of 8.2 million pupils, a ratio of 48-to-one compared to 34 in 2002 resulting in less public school children receiving a proper education and passing exams for secondary school education. In both private and public school the differences are clearly visible: more books per student, less children and education material in private schools than public school.
