oa Journal of Psychology in Africa - Values expressed by secondary school teachers and university students in Namibia



A values scale was administered to a systematic stratified sample of 296 teachers and 276 students. The purpose of this was, inter alia, to find out whether values expressed by the teachers and students were consistent with Namibia's educational change and reform. The data revealed that values expected to foster social solidarity, conformity, maintenance of the status quo, social harmony and restraint were prized more highly by teachers and students than values expected to promote change. This and other findings are discussed to communicate the theoretical and practical merits of the discourse of ethics of educational change for the Namibian and other educational systems under reform.
