In Sub-Saharan Africa there is an extensively recognized social problem of widespread unemployment among secondary school graduates. The task of how to enhance the employment level of the population is of concern to political, economic, religious and educational leaders as well as to scholars. The main purpose of this paper is to suggest how the educational systems in English speaking Sub-Saharan African countries can be modified to help in the reduction of unemployment. It is believed that these suggestions will also be relevant in the reduction of underemployment, crimes, juvenile delinquency, and intercultural conflicts.
