Sorry to bring basic English issues here... [Jun. 20th, 2008|12:21 am]

Is this community still active?

So, my transfer credit didn't come through in time, so I'm stuck in a basic English class. I have to write an Expository Essay.

I've constructed this thesis statement for the essay:

"While it may not have accomplished the task of making education more accessible, In 1985 Kenya switched from a British-based system to one that was more structurally aligned with the United States in order to more closely fit their country's needs."

I have access to a lot of information at my place of employment regarding the actual structure of the educational system of Kenya. So, I can describe what the 8-4-4 system involves, when they switched to it, what was involved with the British-based system, etc.

However I can't find any resources on how the citizens were impacted by the change. Based on what we receive where I work, I'm assuming that switching to the 8-4-4 system did not make getting an education that much more accessible to the citizens of Kenya. However, I am unable to find any resources to prove or disprove this theory.

Again, I'm sorry to bring such a basic matter here. However, the feedback I'm receiving regarding this is miminal.

Thanks in advance.
