Educational Policy and the Mission Schools: Case Studies from the British Empire

Front Cover
Brian Holmes
Routledge, Oct 28, 2013 - Education - 384 pages

Originally published 1967, this title reveals how the missionaries, so often misguided and short-sighted, were in fact pioneers of modernization, science and freedom. The structure of the book allows for comparative analysis and the volume illustrates how some of the social consequences of action through the schools could be foreseen. In addition light is thrown on the results of Imperial rule during the nineteenth century and on the nature of the impact of Western education in Asia and Africa.
