Like any other business, schools require input of resources in order to deliver their mandate. Unlike other business the provision of education has other factors that are likely to interfere with the delivery and implementation of the teaching curriculum. Whether income and provision of physical facilities affect the delivery of the curriculum materials still remain largely unconfirmed. The aim of this study was to determine this relationship and the factors that are likely to affect it. All the schools in Nakuru County were identified. The county was stratified into seven districts and the schools were stratified into public and private schools. A sample of 33 schools was randomly selected. Questionnaires and a school observation guide were administered to the Head teachers and the bursars while the researcher filled the observation guide with the help of members of staff. The data collected was analyzed using correlation, regression and chi square to determine if there was any relationship. The study found that income is significantly related to academic performance while physical facilities have no significant correlation with academic performance at 95% level of confidence. The recommendation was that schools supervising authority should endeavor to ensure that school income is not spent only in provision of physical facilities but other teaching and learning resources as well. The government also needs to come up with prioritization rules to act as a guide as to what the schools should procure and when.

For a peer-reviewed journal, the publication of articles plays an essential role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards. The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.
The editor has the following responsibilities:
1.The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.
2.The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
3.The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.
4.The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.
5.The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.
