Schools at Risk: The Impact of Public School Land Grabbing in Kenya

ShuleYangu Policy Brief Two: January 19th 2017

This policy brief expands on “One Year on From Lang’ata: Why Public School are Still at Risk”, a qualitative study released in January 2016 by the ShuleYangu Alliance. It looks at the correlation between land grabbing and the violation of fundamental human rights and seeks to prove that land grabbing affects the State’s ability to protect and provide for fundamental human rights. In an attempt to prove this, the brief employs a case-study approach, looking at the social, psychological, economic and institutional impact of land grabbing on 15 primary school communities across ten counties. It makes assumptions on the general impact public schools face as a result of public school land grabbing.
