"Introducing Wolof in Senegalese schools : A case study"

This chapter is an account of a pilot education project lasting four years, during which a Senegalese national language (Wolof) was introduced into a primary school in a village in Senegal. The study’s primary aim was to analyse how the villager farmers, who mostly speak Saafi-Saafi, view the use of Wolof as the medium of instruction. Another goal was to find out how teachers perceived this new way of teaching. This chapter gives a double analysis of the pilot, showing that language diversity may, at the same time, be a key to success for the introduction of national languages into school but also act as a brake on that success due to the lack of inclusion of certain languages, which raises the issue of otherness, i.e. taking into account the other languages present in a given geographical area.
