Abstract:In the Protectorate of the Northern Territories of the Gold Coast, colonial rule controlled change through the agency of supposedly unspoiled traditional institutions. Three main phases structure the development of administrative policies toward education and missionary activity in the period up to 1940: the first 20 years of British rule in which education was limited; the period after 1919, in which a definite educational policy for the protectorate was established by Governor Guggisberg; the period from 1928-1940, when indirect rule was discussed and introduced. Conclusion: this paper reveals the continuing imbalance in education between northern and southern Ghana. Map, notes, tables.
