The Yorùbá value proverbs, philosophy and education very highly because they are deep- rooted in the culture of the people for instance, proverbs often occur informally in everyday discourse and in oratory to garnish, conceal or hint. The cultural affinity between the speaker and the audience makes the proverbial utterance meaningful to the hearer in the society. Like other people in universe, Yorùbá philosophy is ‘life affirming’. That is Yorùbá traditional philosophy has to do with life, perhaps in human beings, animals, rocks, soil and plants. The Yorùbá are very observant and the events in their immediate environment have a considerable impact on their mode of life. In Yorùbá society, the system of education is inherent in Yorùbá oral literature such as proverbs, poems, songs, folktales and riddles. The main function of Yorùbáorature is to influence the behaviour of one another in the society. The concept of ‘O?mo?lúàbí (the well-behaved one,) is very prominent, and it is on it that the principle of Yorùbá education is based. Since proverbs are said to represent people’s philosophy and instructions are given through proverbs, it means then that, proverbs can fulfill their philosophical and educational functions in the society.

The National Association of Black Social Workers, founded in 1968, commemorated its golden anniversary in 2018 simultaneously completing 40 International Education Conferences in 2017. This paper provides a reflective examination of conferee perspectives of their International Education Conference experiences and alignment of Black Power, pan-Africanism, and Afrocentrism. A deductive- inductive analysis yielded six themes conferees believed NABSW operationalizes in the Diaspora: distribution of monetary and non-monetary donations, relationship development, programming, advocacy, Afrocentric beliefs, and cultural awareness. Embedded in its mission and code of ethics, these six themes reassure NABSW their founding philosophies are apparent and upheld fifty years later.

The social representations of school performance have proven to be very diverse, and vary according to the aspirations of the stakeholders involved, the position they occupy in the system and the issues attached to it. In Morocco, there are multiple stakeholders in the public education system (The ministry of education and its decentralized services, teacher unions, the civil society, parents, students, etc.), and each of them has a specific mission which is in dynamic complementation with the other stakeholders in the system. The school principal remains the local actor par excellence. He occupies a decisive position in the functioning of the school. This position, which involves critical decision making, is where the execution of educational policies is exercised and where the aspirations of the different stakeholders are expressed. This paper aims at questioning how school principals perceive the \"performance of their schools\". In other words, it enquires on the signification (meaning) that these school leaders give to the performance of a school. To respond to this inquiry, data is collected using a questionnaire, which is administered to 40 different schools in the region of Guelmim Oued Noun.
