Abstract
This edited volume by Carmel Mc Naught and Sarah Gravett is part of a series titled Perspectives on education in Africa. The series seeks to “offer tools for analysing, for understanding, and for decisionmaking concerning contemporary issues of education in Africa” (p. xiii). Its underlying assumption is that such tools and analysis, while respectful of other perspectives should be grounded in indigenous knowledge and experience as a way of decolonising African education. The promotion of African scholarship about Africa is seen as a way of enhancing education in and for African people by celebrating it and theorising lessons for the future.
