A Study of the English Public School Tradition in the Former European Secondary Boarding Schools in Kenya and its Influence on Other Secondary Schools

The study traces the development of colonial attitudes and outlook in Africans educated in the English Public Boarding School tradition in Africa. It shows the repercussion this has had on the country in its attempt to grow into a united and truly African country; and it suggests that the difference between the African socialist philosophy accepted by the government and the educational practice of these schools can be considerably narrowed if these schools become “Sixth Form Colleges”, providing an easier social milieu for inter-tribal mixing.
