Abstract:Focuses primarily on the interaction between educational developments and politics in the work of the local native councils. Prior to 1957 these councils were the only modern government assembly to which indigenous Kenyans elected representatives, and an examination of its proceedings can help illuminate the ways its members could use colonial institutions to advance their own interests as well as the very real limitations to working through them. The article pays much attention Co the independent school movement: a movement in Kikuyu areas in the early 1930s, advocating the creation of African schools free of government and mission control.
