Abstract:Based on documentation collected from 1995 through 1997, this study discusses the path toward the development of a democratic partnership between a Namibian college of education and four schools in the local educational area. It describes the initial educational conditions in postindependent Namibia and the potential role of education reform for the development of democratic values. Indicators of democratic values are discussed and used to understand partnership initiation and the resulting changes in the interrelationships of the college and the schools. The case discusses the potential of partnership development between educational institutions as a contributing mechanism for democratization. Bibliogr., note, sum. [Journal abstract]
