Stakeholder’s participation in policy decisions and implementation was identified as an effective mechanism of ensuring educational quality and development.Through literature and document review this paper is aimed at identifying the factors that impede effective stakeholder participation in the implementation of education policies despite the fact that the National Education Policy has guaranteed their participation with a view to eliminating overlaps, sustain and achieve synergy. Among the identified issues that hinders their effective engagement include sidelining them in educational matters, politicizing education policies and delay in making decisions in cases of their involvement such as the School Based Management Committees (SBMC’s) and the Parent Teacher’s Association (PTA).To rectify the challenges towards achieving the goals of education, it is recommended that the government should partner with the stakeholders in education provision, involve them in all education related issues even in cases of policy revision; intensify enlightment campaigns about government policies & that the differences among the stakeholder should be accommodated as this is believed to ensure effective implementation of the policies.
