Abstract

This study analyses the functions of the national educational system and of specific educational institutions and programmes in the national development process in Tanzania before and after independence. The principal focus is the relationship between the formulated and the implemented educational policies with emphasis on the possible contribution of education to economic development. The analysis is undertaken both at the macro and the micro level. The macro-analysis relates the development and change of the national educational system to the development and change of the general socio-economic and political context during the two periods. The micro-analysis of selected educational institutions and programmes in different socio-economic regions investigates how the stipulated national political and economic development goals were implemented at the local level. The combined investigation sets an historical perspective for the policy of education for self-reliance by comparing its similarities with and differences from the mass education approach adopted during the British period. The major contribution of the study is the understanding of the influence of politico-ideological elements and socio-economic settings on educational achievements. By identifying the barriers to educational achievement, the potential for education to improve national development is underscored.
