Language, Development Aid and Human Rights in Education : Curriculum Policies in Africa and Asia Hardback
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Global Citizenship Education and Democracy series
The debate about languages of instruction in Africa and Asia involves an analysis of both the historical thrust of national government and also development aid policies.
Using case studies from Tanzania, Nigeria, South Africa, Rwanda, India, Bangladesh and Malaysia, Zehlia Babaci-Wilhite argues that the colonial legacy is perpetuated when global languages are promoted in education.
The use of local languages in instruction not only offers an effective means to contextualize the curriculum and improve student comprehension, but also to achieve quality education and rights in education.
