At independence Namibia inherited a teacher education system that was largely conditioned by the apartheid ideology and its Bantu education policy. As clearly recorded elsewhere in the literature, education was to become the primary medium for inculcating the apartheid racial schemes into the minds of the young of all racial groups (Cohen 1994; Department of Information and Publicitey, SWAPO of Namibia 1981). For the blacks education was nothing more than their preparation for inferior positions in the white dominated slave-master society. The Bantu education policy also commanded its own teacher education system to service the entire apartheid status quo. Within this framework teacher education was to create a social class of unreflective and obedient teachers.
