Template:Education infobox[edit]

I created a template, Template:Education infobox which can give a quick at a glance demographics table for education articles. See its implementation at Education in the United States and feel free to help improve the template.--naryathegreat | (talk) 01:00, August 7, 2005 (UTC)

Negativity of this article[edit]

The tone of this article is quite problematic. It starts off with "lack" and "overcrowding" and "disparity." Yet Africa is, as a continent, the place where so many early educational forms began, for instance, monasticism. Through it's presentist bias, and its refusal to address non-Western forms of education, it is reproducing stereotypical views of Africa. As one main suggestion, it should have a section on traditional education, both Islamic, as in West Africa, and Christian, as in Ethiopia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wendybelcher (talkcontribs) 18:25, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

The scope of this article[edit]

This article is too wide in scope. It generalises, and exerbarates the perception that Africa is all the same everywhere. An aricle named Education in Europe would be speedily deleted. --Ezeu 15:11, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

  • It could be rescoped to Education in Sub-Saharan Africa, but the world often talks about Africa or at least Sub-Saharan Africa as a single entity so wikipedia has to provide some reflection of that. For example, there's Nepad program, which has to be discussed in an article with this scope. Kappa 05:59, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
  • I have recently completed a lot of research on the corruption in education in Africa, I hope to develop an extensive section on that because I think unfortunately it has become central to the state of education. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice for me in doing this new section? troth2 12:25, 27 April 2011 (EST)

Further translations (French, German, Arabian)[edit]

Hi, I think this topic should be translated into further languages, especially those present at the continent itself and in those countries providing aid. A general overview should be available in as much Wikis as possible. Cheers, Horst-schlaemma (talk) 10:34, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
