Education for Kagisano. Kagisano ka Thuto. Report.
Botswana National Commission on Education, Gaborone.
This report presents the findings and recommendations of Botswana's National Commission on Education, based on the commission's 15-month review of Botswana's education system and its goals and major problems. The commission conducted its study from January 1976 through March 1977 and gathered information through personal visits and consultations with groups and individuals throughout Botswana, through invited written submissions from organizations and the general public, and through the work of investigative task forces composed of local teachers, educational administrators, and personnel within the Ministry of Education. The commission's overall finding was that while education in Botswana has grown dramatically in terms of quantity and scale since independence, the nature of education has changed little, and it is widely believed that the quality of education has actually declined. Major sections of the report focus in turn on educational problems and issues in Botswana, educational goals, strategy for educational development, primary education as a national priority, secondary education, teachers and teacher education, nonformal education, educational administration and planning, and implementation of the commission's recommendations.
