BeschreibungEducational practices vary widely in Sub-Saharan Africa, due to political instability, economic pressures and availability of resources. This volume examines the history, educational philosophies and practices of schools in the region, including a special "Day in the Life" feature that shows readers what an average student's school day is like.

Pressestimmen"Although Sub-Saharan Africa possesses many natural resources, the countries' educational systems have failed to make much of a difference in most people's standard of living. The Omatseyes address this issue in "Going to School in Sub-Saharan Africa". Historical, political, and economic circumstances--from the legacy of colonialism to the scourge of AIDS--have led to multiple failures in educating the African child." - MultiCultural Review
