Secondary schools are considered by many sources to be one of the most important institutions for molding the values and attitudes of the influential citizens of the future. This paper will examine some of the theoretical bases for the assumption that schools can be effective agents for national development and will then look at some of the current activities of secondary schools in one African country.
