Culture and ideology in conflict: the village polytechnic programme in Kenya

Culture and ideology in conflict: the village polytechnic programme in Kenya

Working Paper, Institute for Development Studies, University of Nairobi (445): 26

A divergence between ideals and practice has been a characteristic feature of polytechnic development. This paper considers the clash between ideology and culture in the areas of curriculum, assessment, self employment and local control in village polytechnics in Kenya. It suggests that the neglect of agriculture, the orientation to paid employment, and the tendency of the government to take over with management committees have prescribed policies for the polytechnics.
