This paper traces the development of community based education since the colonial period in English speaking Africa. It is shown that this policyï¿½which drew considerable influence from educational programmes designed for Black Americans of the Southern States of the United States through the famous Phelps Stokes Fundï¿½was the key to colonial education practice and has featured prominently in post independence Africa. It has not however succeeded in changing the pervasive nature of the academic school curriculum because of political, socioeconomic and educational/actors that tend to undermine it.
