MetadataShow full item record
The paper examines the crucial role of an ideal socio-political education in nation building in multi- racial and multi- ethnic societies, particularly with regards to the 'politics of the nation'. In particular, it argues that education is the nucleus of society and a perfect education builds a perfect society. The work among other things, argues for a proper education on the meaning o fa 'nation'. Rather than being used as an instrument of exclusion and discrimination, the concept of nation can be used positively to integrate and unite people regardless of cultural, ethnic, or racial differences. Nation building is only possible through a correct education, an education that is selfless, that overrides challenges brought about by racial and tribal differences by preaching the gospel of oneness of all people sharing a common territory they all call home.
