The Best Secondary Schools in Turkana County.
Turkana County is the largest county in Kenya and again ranked the poorest county in Kenya. It is bordered by countries such as Ethiopia, Uganda and the newly formed country; South Sudan. The majority of people who reside in this county are the Turkana people.
This county (Turkana County) is among the counties that have few schools and inadequate personnel (teachers). Inadequacy of teachers contributes to poor performance in many of secondary schools in Turkana County. The harshness of the environment also contributes to poor performance.
Despite the fact that Turkana is a semi-arid area, there are few schools that perform well in Kenya certificate of secondary education (KCSE) examinations in Kenya every year hence take students to universities. This is also attributed by the university admission cut points which are also adjusted accommodate students from hardship areas such as Turkana county.
