Education readings

Read and outline this document for class/homework. It contains a good overview of the issues surrounding and current state of education in Africa and would make a reasonable addition to our book as a chapter on the topic. You’ll see many of the topics we addressed visually with the Worldmapper maps laid out here more traditionally.

If you want to get ahead on the work for Wednesday, you can read

  1. this article, which discusses the colonial legacy in African education and describes promising reforms on that front.
  2. p. 409-412 in the book, an introduction to technology issues.

We’ll have a basic “did you read?” quiz over the Sacred Heart article and the overview paper on Wednesday. Study the bigger issues in each article – I suggest making a brief outline for the Sacred Heart article too.
