This paper traces the historical development of education in Botswana. The role of communities in the traditional schools of the pr e-colonial era is considered as well as the role of religious organisations and the colonial government. The particular focus is on the participation of communities in the development of education and the role of the Tribal School Committees of the colonial era is contrasted with the current Boards of Governors. The paper illustrates the key role that community participation has played in Botswana's educational development.
