Education is to inform better about and guide one through what one has to do or become. If this information and guidance is focused on others or their environment, that education will appear irrelevant and cannot support or mismatch the needed development, like putting a square peg in a round hole.
"Development is self-made, outsiders can only help."
"Compete with yourself, collaborate with others."

Learning to become the European-be-like is exciting viewed from the perspective of competition as in sports. Development vis-a-vis Globaville's natural resources however prefers collaboration rather. The African resources are waiting for their development in their own right.
He who has a good African and Global heart, dig the first planting hole in Africa!
