by Shittu Gambari,Magnus O. Bassey




Chronicles the development of education in Nigeria from its clashing Islamic and European missionary roots in pre-colonial days to the eventual government takeover of schools. As context for this evolution, Bassey (education, Queens College, The City U. of New York) overviews the history of the country, traditional Islamic education, early attempts at formal Western education by various Christian denominations, and missionary rivalry and educational expansion into the 20th century. Appends a synopsis of the Nigerian 6-3-3-4 system of education. Data tables summarize such relevant statistics as the number of schools, teachers, and primary, secondary, and university enrollment for selected years. Annotation c.
