Course Description & Objectives: 

Education has long been viewed as a tool for solving or alleviating social, political and economic problems. The course examines the relationship between education and development. It seeks to highlight the assumptions behind the education/development nexus so as to enable a critical appraisal of it. Is it not that the system of education we inherited from the colonist is a hindrance to development? How can educational (including curricular, pedagogical etc) reform genuinely result into development? It focuses on education as key factor for liberation and modernization. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Analyze the relationship between education and development.
