The Influence of Colonial Ideology on Schoolbooks in the Belgian Congo.
Mbandaka, Honore Vinck
Paedagogica Historica, v31 n2 p355-405 Jun 1995
An analysis of 50 textbooks used in the elementary schools of the former Belgian Congo reveals an overt attempt to propagate colonial ideology. Fundamental themes included the legitimacy of the colonization, denigration of the indigenous culture, and establishment of colonial authority. Three books, however, resisted this indoctrination and one openly criticized the colonial regime. (MJP)
