Abstract: The purpose of this research was to investigate the influence on learner's absenteeism on their academic progress in Kabarnet division, Baringo district in Kenya. The following objectives guided the study; to establish the prevalence and causes of absenteeism, to establish the relationship between absenteeism and poor academic performance and to find out if absenteeism affects the children's retention in school. The respondents were teachers since they were the people with first hand information about the learners. A questionnaire was used to carry out this investigation. Finding of the study showed that absenteeism was rampant in school and the causes were both home based and school based factors, and that some learners performed poorly because of absenteeism and in some cases they dropped out of school. It was recommended that teachers change their attitude towards their learners and make learning interesting. They should also counsel the learners.
