The study is concerned with the education system of Botswana after independence.
This period starts from the 30th September 1966, when Botswana became independent
up to the present moment. Since then the education system has undergone many
changes. Consequently the focus is on the nature and impact of these changes. The
study identifies changes which took place with regard to the Education System of
Botswana since independence as far as meeting the minimum requirements of education
of developing countries are concerned.
The minimum requirements that the education systems of developing countries, must
meet are discussed according to the four central components of the education systems,
viz. the education system policy, education system administration, structure for teaching
and support services. After introducing the problem statement and background in the
introductory chapter, the minimum requirements of education systems in developing
countries are discussed in Chapter 2.
Chapter 3 then deals with a historical perspective on the education system of Botswana
before independence, concentrating on the different historical periods associated with
educational development up to independence day.
The study then discusses the determinants of the education system of Botswana after
independence in Chapter 4, focussing on the particular factors influencing the Botswana
Finally, Chapter 5 evaluates the level to which the education system policy and education
system administration of the education system of Botswana meet the minimum requirements
of the education systems of developing countries, while Chapter 6 evaluates the
level to which the structure for teaching and support services meet the minimum requirements
of the education systems of developing countries. In general, the evaluation indicates that the education system of Botswana has undergone many positive changes
and that the Botswana education system compares favourably with the minimum requirements
expected of the education systems of developing countries.
