10--THE PROGRESS Fr;day, June I% 1964 ,,  .... ........ iiiiii:.! i @" Father Szeman The Dark Continent One of the greatest mission successes of the Church has been in Africa, but today this continent is suffering many growing pains. In looking at 20th-century Africa, one might say that efforts are being made to enlighten the Dark Continent with a 20-watt bulb. For there is simply not enough capable native leadership-- in government, in education, in economics -- to lead the Dark Continent into light, a situation which can be traced, in part, to inadequate education. Twenty-five million of Africa's 170 million inhabitants are of school age. Yet, more than half of these have no opportunity to go to school. Only one of every thousand Africans completes the equivalent of the first year Of college, and nine out of 10 Society forT he Propagation of the Faith Re, Stephen Szeman, Arch di0cesan Director 907 Terry Avenue, Seattle 4wMA. 2-8880 do not go beyond the sixth grade. The overall illiteracy rate is 80 to 85 per cent, which is twice the average world figure. Let us consider the situation in just one African nation, Northern Rhodesia. This country, which will be known as Zam- bia when it becomes an independent member of the British Commonwealth later this year, is one of the more fortunate African nations. Yet, education statistics are alarming. Thirty per cent of all education is Catholic. Children in 650 Catholic primary schools receive at least a rudimentary Chris- tian education and the privileged few can go on to the second- ary schools (five for girls, seven secondary schools and two minor seminaries for boys). Overall, 90 per cent of the children aged seven and eight can receive at least four years of education in the lower pri- mary schools. Only 30 per cent, however, can go on to the mid- dle primary and 10 per cent to the upper primary grades. Of these, only one-sixth can enter junior secondary schools, and the percentage continues to drop drastically at every level. A mere 100 Rhodesians have attained an educational level corresponding to the first year of college in the American system. Teachers are needed desperately, but most educated Africans leave the schools for politics and administration. Until education is able to provide a reservoir from which political and religious leaders can be drawn, Africa will remain in the shadows.
