Abstract
Migrants, and particularly nomads, are among the most marginalized social groups, and are widely excluded from educational provision, despite pledges of education for all. The phenomenon of movement itself presents many challenges for both providers, and would be users, of educational services. Around the world, the provision of education for nomads has reflected and been instrumental to particular stances on pastoral development. The links between education and development are explored specifically in the case of a transhumant pastoral group in North Eastern Kenya. The research paper reveals education for all as an ideological notion, reflecting values that contradict those of nomadic groups and argues that the value positions underlying this notion need to be articulated and further contextualized if it is not simply to reflect existing, and exclusive hegemonies.
