"This well-crafted anthology provides us with rich material to stretch our thinking, concerning Sociology of Education, beyond the customary Eurocentric framework. It is comprehensive in scope, covering a variety of issues relevant to the educational scene in sub-Saharan Africa. The volume draws on the work of emerging and well established writers who focus on different areas that feature in the educational debate in Africa: inclusive education, school curricula, higher education, gender and equity, colonial and anti-colonial education, and African educational philosophies. It is a boon for scholars engaged not only in sociology of education but also in Gender Studies, Postcolonial Studies, Curriculum Studies, Comparative Education, Social Theory and Philosophy of Education." - Peter Mayo, University of Malta, author of Gramsci, Freire and Adult Education and Liberating Praxis.
"Issues in African Education takes the standard sociology of education and then offers an African critique. Not in the last thirty years has there been a text that addresses this important topic, and this volume is a most useful addition." - Dr. W. Stephen Howard, Ohio University
