AbstractThe goal of education in countries which regard themselves as democracies is to help develop citizens who can actively participate in the democratic process. Today, more than ever before, schools face the challenge of aligning their philosophies to the democratic national principles of the nation-state in order to produce citizens who are active in the democratic process. Therefore, this study was undertaken to explore the relationship between democracy and education by investigating the efficiency of the prefectship system (student leadership system where students choose their leaders) in Botswana Secondary Schools.
