Pie Edusols: Out of School Free Learning in Western Province of Kenya
The problem of being out of schools is quite a critical issue that creates not only problems of the uneducated future generation but also contributes to the proliferation of antisocial elements in the country for example, high unemployment levels, increased dependency ratios, increased criminals related activities, lack of technological advancement and economic growth // Education is therefore the only best strategic intervention through which these antisocial elements in a country can be eliminated. People acquire knowledge skills and attitudes about various things in life from various resources. Of these resources, formal education through schooling education, adult education, non formal education and Open distance learning (ODL). // Open and Education resources and Open learning centers will offer good intervention to potential learners. Open learning is predicted on the belief that openness in many forms is a key element to reaching out to many possibly removing some barriers presented by more traditional forms of education.
