HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 c52W
Mrs. White

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what provision is made for secondary education for Africans in Nyasaland; and how many boys and girls, respectively, were receiving such education at the latest convenient date.

Mr. Lyttelton

There are three African secondary schools which provide a four-year course leading to school certificate. Two are financed by Government and controlled by boards of governors. The third is entirely under Government control and provides technical as well as academic courses. There are 222 boys and 8 girls at these schools.

There are, in addition, 8 private junior secondary schools providing education up to standard eight; details of enrolment for the present scholastic year are not yet available.
