Education in Africa has not been taken into consideration our own culture. Education started by colonizers who brought their thoughts, culture, norms and values and Africans forgot their own africanism and thus swallow all of the colonizers breads. Africa has been circumcised in mind and thoiught that to live happy, we need necessary to seek support from Europe/Amerca, wht don't we teach our people to live our life taking into consideration our culture, norms and values.
