Language of Education and Development in Africa … tells the story of Africa‘s apparent linguistic powerlessness, while engaging the prospects of sustained decolonization and empowerment. Reviewing existing pessimistic narratives of the African language situation, and the repercussions of these narratives for development, scholars from different parts of Africa and from Europe weigh in by proposing a change paradigm, and a more optimistic view of the future. Language is critical to development; therefore, painting a static picture of Africa, as one that is forever tethered to colonial languages, is not only untrue but also serves negatively to imit African agency. A triadic new mantra is proposed and pursued in this volume, that is: Change is necessary, change is possible, and change is inevitable. Substantive representations from various parts of Africa are showcased in the book, along with expertise shared by international education communities such as UNESCO and SIL, in order to put forward an exciting new narrative of decolonization and empowerment.
