Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)


Educational Leadership


A crucial role of education is the function of transmitting culture and prepare the young for a vocation and assuming a productive role in a social system. In some cultures, education provides means for earning a living. For example, education to many Africans (Foster:1980), is viewed in very pragmatic and instrumental terms. The reason for going to school is necessary to obtain suitable employment. Education as a liberal framework is foreign to most Africans.
