Abstract

The Constitution of Namibia (1990) guarantees the freedom to practise any religion, a sentiment also expressed in the Education Act (2001) for state schools and further emphasised in the National Curriculum for Basic Education, which aims to develop respect for and tolerance of other people???s religions, beliefs and cultures. But how does this manifest in practice? Olga Bialostocka conducted a study to find out.
