Effects of Physical Facilities on Performance in Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination in Public Schools in Bungoma South, Kenya

Juma Bakari, Sarah Likoko, Fredrick Ndinyo

Secondary education in Kenya is becoming increasingly unaffordable since the standard of performance has continued to deteriorate due to congestion. The government of Kenya in 2008 introduced Free Secondary Education; this increased the enrollment rate and caused strain on the available physical resources in schools. As such, there is need for proper physical resource utilization for the improvement of internal efficiency leading to better academic achievement. This study was guided by a conceptual framework which stems from the school performance plan in academic achievements, which explains that in any learning institution physical facilities should be acquired to enhance proper academic performance. The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of physical facilities on KCSE performance in Secondary schools in Bungoma South District, Kenya. The study employed a descriptive Survey research design. This was carried out in Public Secondary schools in Bungoma South District. The study population consisted of 140 respondents from 20 schools in which were purposely sampled and 15 were systematically sampled. Questionnaires, Interview schedules and Observation scales were the instruments of data collection. The key findings revealed that Physical facilities were available and how they were utilized encouraged students to perform well in KCSE exams in and this influenced academic performance. The research recommended that physical facilities are important for good performance to be realized and that there are further internal factors influencing the performance of students in KCSE Examinations in Bungoma South District. It is hoped that this study will help many schools to improve on internal efficiency and help other researchers in this field to further their study.
