Despite the introduction of Free Primary Education Primary, schools in Kenya have been performing poorly in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examinations. Both the schools and individual pupils have not yet accrued to the full benefits of FPE.

The study employed casual- comparative design that seeks to discover possible causes and effects of behavior pattern or personal characteristics. However a rise can be realized since the teachers are well qualified and the teaching-learning materials are there though inadequate. Pupils need to be encouraged to work harder on their own supplement what they are taught by teachers. In addition the teaching/learning resources need to be made adequate and the school needs general improvement to be conducive to better learning.
