African Education (Mind Liberation #12)

Enrollment is often confused with educating, teaching with mentoring, & helping with empowerment…. Most institutions are working harder to educate their students, not necessarily working smarter to free them from the mental chains that still hold the continent in bondage. The solution is not merely more education, but mind renewal. … Postcolonial education may have helped to emancipate the African mind from the metal chains of traditional idol worship. It has provided us with impressive degrees & diplomas. But this education has not succeeded in liberating us from the mental chains of secularism and “selfism.”—S.K. Pipim, The Transformed Mind, pp. 235, 202-203.
