Abstract
Teachers play a critical role in the education system. As a result, teacher costs rake up 58 percent of public expenditure on education in Kenya. Despite this investment, leaner performance in numeracy and literacy remains below average with wide variability registered across counties. Low learner performance hinders a country's economic growth and limits opportunities for higher education or employment, leading to a cycle of poverty and inequality.
