The study was conducted in Nairobi East District in the Eastern part of the country. fhe study found out, among other things, that Kenya Education Decentralization gave the nandate for responsibilities like: opening schools; recruit, promote, discipline and dismiss :eachers and other educational professionals; procure and distribute school provisions without xior approval of ministry of education. The study found that the power devolved is adequate to .mdertake the responsibilities of expanding Basic Education. But the relationship between the \lairobi East District Education office and that of schools is mostly characterized by a top-down 1ierarchical relationship.

There is acute budget shortage principally capital budget .vhich is reflected in shortage of school infrastructure, provisions and manpower sho11age and as 1 result a tendency of exercising much reliance on the community beyond it can afford to tolerate s observed. :twas generally recommended that for Education Decentralization to succeed there is a need to address the capacity of all those involved from District Education office to the level of schools and equally the budget constraint must be solved if education should serve as a basis of development.
