1926. Education Proclamation No 16

This act superseded the EDUCATION PROCLAMATION 55 of 1921.

While the government continued to "bear the responsibility of the control and management of all the Territory's education", this proclamation "provided for the classification of the existing mission schools into Mission Schools for Coloureds and 'Natives' respectively" (Mbamba 1982: 58).
