Quote Of The Day

"The purpose of education is to transmit from one generation to the next the accumulated wisdom and knowledge of the society, and prepare children for their future participation in the maintenance and development of the society. With the advent of colonial rule this changed. A formal system of education was introduced, the function of which was not to prepare children for service to the community in which they lived, but rather to produce servants to the colonial administration." -Julius Nyerere (From, "Developing Positive Self-Images & Discipline In Black Children" By: Jawanza Kunjufu
