Deals with the realities of education in a debt-ridden African country trying to cope with the pressures of externally imposed educational budgets.

“Buchert's sensitivity to the importance of language is…[a] strength as this has been largely ignored in many discussions of education in Tanzania…Education in the Development of Tanzania is an important contribution to the debate on educational transformation from a historical perspective. It also provides an insightful historical analysis of education in Tanzania.”
