dc.description.abstract In stressing the compensatory legitimation function of decentralization in relation to the crucial issues of the inability of the African state to manage the educational system, and the challenge of irrelevance of the educational system, this paper considers the colonial history of Africa, particularly the way Western-type education was introduced into the colonies. In so doing, attention is specifically drawn to the existence of indigenous learning systems everywhere in sub-Saharan Africa that pose cultural and moral challenges to educational planners. -from Author en
