Bridging the gap between school and community

  • J. K. Barah
The School and Life


The Federal Republic of Cameroon is a country of diversity. It has twin educational systems, francophone and anglophone, different cultures and languages and different types of climate and countryside. It has a variety of religious beliefs and historical traditions due to earlier division under colonial rule, but it is a country where working solutions and compromises are found in the midst of this diversity. It is therefore not surprising that in some areas a way is being evolved of closing the gap which exists in so many parts of the world between the school and the community.
