Abstract
Globalization has been considered as an eye-opener to socio-cultural developments due to the benefits gained from multi-national interconnectedness. However, its impact to rural communities is still minimal. Education which no doubt is a driving force to enhance penetration of globalization across boarders is itself still unrealized in most areas of southern Tanzania, especially in rural areas. This is due to the high shortage of schools, teachers and other teaching facilities but mainly caused by cultural rooted factors. This paper discusses the state of affairs with regard to how education barriers also emerge as barriers towards communicating important national and global issues for the sake of socio-economic development of rural communities particularly that of Mtwara region in Tanzania. The paper unveils the current situation with regard to both education and globalization and the way indigenous communities in Mtwara region respond to globalization pressure. In its conclusion the paper suggests the possible measures to be taken in order to promote education for the betterment of not only intellectual development but get to a better way of accommodating the pressure of globalization.
