The author has attempted to raise some problematic issues and concerns around formal education in Africa and particularly South Africa, which is in a stage of creating an inclusive education system. The author argues that a necessary starting point is to first recognize the voices of those who are excluded and marginalized, and then todevelop strategies which will ensure their inclusion. Understanding what indigenous people think about education and the knowledge transmitted to their children will ensure their full participation in decision-making.
