The education system in Kenya is faced by several challenges that may make it hard or impossible to achieve the needs and plans of education.

Problems facing provision of education for all in Kenya.

There are various barriers that pose a profound threat to the free flow of education to all, among them discussed below.
Cultural issues.
Culture is the lifestyle of a people. The culture of some groups forbids or discourages some gender from proceeding or enrolling in some educational institutions. This greatly hinders the enrollment and education for all.
Religious issues.
Some religious denominations discourage education to some gender at a certain stage. This disrupts the policy of education for all. They have instilled values in that he or she is not able to attain personal goals in education.
Mismanagement and misappropriation of funds.
The people in charge of the education sector use the monies meant for education in other functions. This means that educational services and facilities are greatly hindered.
They may also use the money on educational purpose but not in the intended field thereby creating a deficit in some sectors.
Pupil-Teacher ratio.
The pupil-teacher ratio is high meaning that one teacher has to serve many pupils. This leads to low quality services thereby denying the pupils opportunity to proceed in their education.
Inadequate facilities.
Infrastructure of schools is not well established in the country. This means that some areas miss out on the necessary building of schools.
Facilities like tables, chairs, writing boards are not available in some schools. This denies the students opportunities to study in a comfortable way. These majorly affect students with disabilities.
Inadequate funds.
The government through the ministry of education does not allocate enough funds in the National Budget. This means that the services provided are not quality since the tutors have to engage in other activities for their upkeep.
This has also resulted to the many strikes the teachers engage from time to time thereby hindering the flow of education.
