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.
"Capitalism means that the masses will work, and a few people - who may not labor at all - will benefit from that work. The few will sit down to a banquet, and the masses will eat whatever is left over."
From a speech written by Julius Kambarage Nyerere, The Rational Choice given on 2 January 1973 in Khartoum.
