Abstract:Historical perspective on Nigerian education and national integration, from the colonial period through to the post-colonial period. The available evidence indicates that education has not filled an integrative function and has not reduced ethnocentrism to any significant degree. In fact, the type of educational programs, the organisation of schools and the educational environment to which students are exposed, as well as the nature of interethnic relations that the larger society promotes can be, and often has been, disintegrative. Notes, refs.
