Formal Education and Psychological Malaise in an African Society
Armer, Michael
Sociol Educ, 43, 2, 143-158, Spr '70
Two theoretical arguments are posed concerning the effects of formal Western education in producing a sense of alienation among individuals in traditional, non-Western societies. The value-conflict thesis leads to the hypothesis that education and alienation are positively associated. The goal frustration thesis suggests that education and alienation are negatively associated among individuals with modern value orientations and positively associated among those with traditional orientations.
