Using African Epistemologies in shaping Inclusive education

The book “Using African epistemologies in shaping inclusive education” is a research book in educational philosophy whose main audience comprises student teachers, academics who teach them, curriculum specialists and comparative educationists. At its heart, the book asserts that ‘inclusivity’ facilitates the establishment and provision of wholesale educational services. This means that when societies are effectively inclusive, educational services provide overarching benefits that satisfy every recipient community’s best definition of ‘a comprehensive education’ for its citizens. Thus, to be inclusive, education should accept, celebrate and utilize all known continental, regional and sub-regional African epistemologies which promote the sustainable provision of best practices in the twenty-first century. With this understanding, chapter contributors should reveal different parts of a jigsaw puzzle which, if well solved, shows current theory, practice and evidence-based benefits of inclusivity, particularly in education epistemologies.
