Education and Citizenship in East Africa, 1966-1967: Kenya Sample (ICPSR 7301)

Version V2

This study includes four datasets collected from four different samples of primary and secondary school students from Kenya and the country's capital, Nairobi. Four separate questionnaires were used, one for each sample. Although they basically probed the same issues, the secondary school questionnaires were able to explore attitudes in greater depth and to investigate the degree of racial and religious prejudices. The study focused on feelings of the student toward the teacher and the educational system, trust in others, attitudes toward the political system, and the respondents' conception of the relationship between the educational system and the economic and political systems. Several questions attempted to assess whether the students believed that an education would help them in the future with respect to employment, influencing the government, and being a good citizen. Background data such as age, race, religion, and education of parents were also collected.
