    Decolonizing African Education

    Decolonizing African Education

    Some of the issues that we tackle on today's show with Mr Godwin Khosa, CEO National Education Collaboration Trust:

    What does the debate around decolonizing education for Africa mean?
    Who would it benefit and how?
    What would be the implications, in an ideal world, of a decolonized curriculum for Africa?
    What process would this entail?
    What would an ideal curriculum look like?
    Do we have the political will for such an initiative? How is this translated into implementation?
    Can we really speak about a decolonized curriculum when the basic state of our schools and teaching is already not meeting international standards (such as for maths and science)? How much of a priority should this be?
    What can we learn from the rest of world that we can apply to Africa/South Africa in terms of this movement?

    Illegal immigration from Africa to Europe is significant.
    Many people from poor African countries embark on the dangerous journey for Europe, in hopes of a better life. The main aim of migrants is to reach European soil - be it mainland Europe or the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla or islands in the Atlantic and Mediterranean. But first the migrants must cross great distances.​They go through dangerous routes, such as having to sea cross to Canaries, crossing Sahara, guerrillas and crossing the desert. Sadly some illegal immigrants die during the journey and most of them who don't get asylum get deported back to Africa. This issue of illegal immigration is witnessed even within our continent and countries. The reasons, the challenges, the opportunities, and also what this phenomenon does to
    the narrative of Africa in the wider international discourse will be discussed.
