Title:Education and the public interest: the politics of the public domain
Author:Uchendu, Victor C.ISNI
Periodical:The Conch: A Biafran Journal of Literary and Cultural Analysis
Geographic term:Subsaharan Africa
Subject:educational policy
Abstract:African nations, like all new nations, are engaged in a deliberate policy of social engineering. Education is at the heart of this effort. Since educational policy involves the allocation of both 'private' and 'public' values, it is by this very fact. a heavily political exercise. The focus on public policy choices of African governments in the field of education leads to the examination of forces that operate to shape policy decisions. This means the isolation and explanation of policy outputs in education with reference to historical, environmental, political, and cultural forces that generate demands on African political systems.
