Configuration of Education and Culture: An African Experience.
Wagaw, Teshome G.
This study analyzes the dynamics of education and culture as modern schooling is introduced to Ethiopia, imposing on the existing religious education institutions. The first of 17 chapters presents an outline of Ethiopian history. Chapters II-IV present sections on indigenous and church education, renewed conceptions of education, and schooling during the Italian occupation. A discussion of the administrative and political framework of the postwar period in Chapter V is followed by three chapters dealing with different aspects of Ethiopia's reconstruction period (1941-1951). Chapter IX deals with Ethiopia's recognition of Eritrea as an autonomous territory from 1941-1962. Chapters X and XI focus on consolidation and Ethiopia's 10-year plan for the controlled expansion of education. Chapters XII and XIII deal with education in the continental framework (1962-1973). Chapter XIV discusses the roots of higher education in Ethiopia, while Chapter XV focuses specifically on the national university of Ethiopia--Haile Selassie I University. Recommendations and projections for the next 20 years in Chapter XVI precede a final epilogue on Ethiopia's educational system. Over 200 tables, charts, and maps are included throughout the document. Appendices include an annotated chart tracing educational development from 1905 to 1978, a list of ministers of education and fine arts (1905-1982), and an extensive bibliography listing over 1,000 related resources.
