Basals in Cameroon: Help or Hindrance?
Yenika-Agbaw, Vivian
International Review of Education/Internationale Zeitschrift fuer Erziehungswissenschaft/Revue Internationale de l'Education, v45 n1 p105-12 1999
States that in "developing" countries such as Cameroon, educators struggle to overcome the remnants of colonial educational systems and instructional methods, which are not in keeping with current educational theory. Examines the inadequacies of the Evans English textbooks used for literacy instruction in West Cameroon schools as an example of how colonial education still haunts "developing" countries. (VWC)
