Abstract:In an interview with the 'Zimbabwe Journal of Educational Research' Zimbabwe's Minister of Higher Education, Dzingai B. Mutumbuka, gives a reaction to the World Bank Report 'Education in Sub-Saharan Africa: Policies for Adjustment, Revitalization, and Expansion' (1988). The following themes are discussed: the state of education in Africa, the promotion of private schools, educational finance, World Bank recommendations on teachers (teacher training, teachers' salaries, the use of unqualified teachers, delaying the promotion of teachers), vocational education, university education and the academic quality of African universities, and ministerial organization and planning. Note. (An executive summary of the World Bank Report is reproduced on p. 6-21.)
