Political Education as Moral Education in Tanzania

Journal of Moral Education 9 (3):166-177 (1980)
Abstract Education in Tanzania is seen as a tool for social change to a society which exhibits African socialist values. Political education, as part of general education, focuses on the issues of citizenship, socialism and development, and because this implies a definite stance towards man and society, can be viewed as moral education in the Tanzanian context. This paper explores the nature of the political education, its effects and the problem of indoctrination.
