Rethink the purpose of higher education

Monday April 20 2015

Education in Kenya seems more interested in churning out graduates without caring whether there are jobs for them.

It makes no sense to increase the number of students without proportionate efforts to increase job opportunities.

Lecturers have little time to mentor students as they are busy shuttling between universities to earn extra money.
