Philosophical reflections on the Nziramasanga Commission on education and training of 1999 with special reference to chapter 4 Hunhu/Ubuntu (holistic education)
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper is to reflect on the findings and recommendations of the Nziramasanga Commission on Education and Training of 1999. The special focus of the reflections shall be on Chapter 7 Hunhu / Ubuntu ( Holistic Education), hunhu/ubuntu, which according to the findings and recommendations of the Commission should be the aim of education in Zimbabwe. The proposition that hunhu /ubuntu should be the aim of education for Zimbabwe is of particular interest to this paper because this recommendation seems to have been a reaction and response to the absence, for a very long time, of an expressed aim of education to inform the provision of education in Zimbabwe. Accordingly this paper is informed by the desire to contribute other dimensions to the articulation of said aim of education desperately required to inform both the theory and practice of education in Zimbabwe.
