"Sankofa" Elleni Tedla - a good read!

"Sankofa" Elleni Tedla - a good read! | Education Development and Community Transformation | Scoop.it
Something to read - The current situation in many of the Sub Saharan African countries in terms of education is bleak. There are still serious issues such as access to education, resource availability, gender equity, class size, and cost, to name but a few. This is all in light of the extent of foreign aid that enters the borders of Africa every year. Even though enrolment rates in all sections of education, primary, secondary and tertiary in many of the African countries are increasing, there has still been the continued failure to meet the millennium goal of Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education for all. There are some however, that are able to get through the levels of the education system but for the few who do, there is still the crisis of job availability that awaits them at the other side. This drives students to either abandon their education in search of work, or if they get the chance, to leave the country in search of greener pastures, and this is often in the countries of the West. With the book "Sankofa" Elleni Tedla states that it is not just the mode and operation of education in Africa which is at fault, but the whole philosophy behind the education system.
