dc.description.abstract Education is an important component of developing the personal moral character of children which is an essential prerequisite for the continuation of civilization. Moral values such as honesty, mutual respect, civility and social responsibility that would help the individuals to live good lives and at the same time become productive, contributing members of the society are lacking. Cases of robberies, murder, corruption, fraud and violence against women, children and the elderly are common. Schools have ignored the moral dimension of schooling leading to decline in achievement scores, increased indiscipline and behavior problems. Educational institutions lack the concept of human development and nation building in the education process. The emphasis instead, is on money-making and materialism resulting in the gradual erosion of values among learners and the society. This trend should change by providing value-orientation in our education system in order to survive as a nation that acquires its due place in the world. This paper, therefore, discusses the challenges facing Kenya and how these challenges can be addressed to reduce moral decadence in this country. en_US
