- It has been proven beyond reasonable doubt that countless numbers of European scholars had been extensively schooled by African tutors in Egypt
- The likes of Aristotle, Socrates, Archimedes and many other top historic scholars have all been named
- The 'assertion' was strongly backed by one Greek scholar named Alexandria who says even a 1,000-paged book cannot contain the full number of Europeans who schooled in Africa

Several studies have lent credence to the fact that the very first European scholars were schooled in Egypt by local Africans.
According to Libertywritersafrica.com, popular people in history who were Greeks (Europeans) and whose writings and works are still studied in the modern-day learnt in Egypt.
It is said that Philosopher Plato was a student at the Temple of Waset for 11 years and Aristotle was also a student there for 11-13 years. They reportedly studied at the feet of Egyptian scholars along the Nile Valley, Kemet.
The list of European scholars who studied in Africa covers other revered individuals such as Socrates.
Socrates spent at least 15 years at the same temple and Euclid also reportedly studied for 10-11 years there.
In addition, Pythagoras spent 22 years at the same place and Hippocrates also learned in the same temple for 20 years.
Diodorus, Solon, Thales, Archimedes, and Euripides among several others have also been captured by historical records getting schooled at different times in the African country Egypt.
There is also substantive evidence that half of humanity’s recorded history passed before anyone in Europe could even learn to read and write.
Prominently, St. Clement of Alexandria who is also a Greek scholar once made a profound statement about the historical records.
According to Alexandria, a 1,000-paged book won’t be enough to list out the number of all the Greeks who were schooled by African tutors.
In other news, a 16-year-old form-two student from Ada Technical Senior High School in the Greater Accra region by name Ivy Lartey has taken to part-time work to fund her vacation classes.
This has been because her parents were unable to provide for her. According to a short documentary by 3news.com, Ivy has been on vacation since December 19, 2020, and is expected to resume school on March 1.
This counts as a three-month period of holidays after spending only a month in school. With the help of her parents, the young girl was able to secure a job at Gino where she markets the products and makes about 50 cedis on a daily basis.
