The collection includes Nyerere's ground-breaking policy paper 'Education for Self-Reliance', which remains a key reference work on progressive and transformative education in a postcolonial context. Other papers discuss the ethical basis for expanding tertiary level education in a developing country where primary education is not yet established, as well as the education needs and rights of school-aged children.
"[A] man is developing himself when he grows, or earns, enough to provide decent conditions for himself and his family; he is not being developed if someone gives him these things."
Julius Kambarage Nyerere, from his book Uhuru na Maendeleo (Freedom and Development), 1973.
