Comparative Education and the Third World: The Nineteenth Century Revisited.
Yates, Barbara A.
Comparative Education Review, v28 n4 p533-49 Nov 1984
Notes that traditional views of nineteenth century comparative education (a period of Eurocentric "borrowing") neglect western selection and transfer of educational models to the Third World ("selective lending"). Traces the first three decades of colonial Zaire's experience--beginning in 1877--which illustrate the "civilizing" task concept shared by most educators in the Congo. (BRR)
