Education and Politics in Namibia unravels the past trends and future prospects of the education system in Namibia, from the colonial era to the present. This work looks into ways in which education contributed to the reproduction of the colonial order.

It makes apparent the contradictions inherent in that process. The study does this through a combination of theoretical and empirical analyses of historical data with an interpretative synthesis of socio-economic and educational factors.

Dr Elizabeth Magano Amukugo wras born in Okapya, Ondangwa District, Northern Namibia. She did her primary education at Onayena Primary School (1963-1970) and part of her secondary education at Ongwediva High School, from which she was expelled in 1973, for political reasons.
