Abstract: In most sub Saharan African countries, education was conducted by missionaries, which led to the invasion of foreign languages and or cultures. As one of the sub Saharan countries, Ethiopia is facing the same situation in addition to the changes that took place during the regime change. With these changes, educational philosophy, educational policy and its accompanying epistemology have also changed significantly. However, none of this covers the socio-cultural aspects of the country. Therefore, the quality of education at all levels of the education system has been the focus of discussion in the past few years. The current initiative (Ethiopia s education development road map (2018-30)) is one of the products of a significant debate in the education sector. Therefore, the purpose of this paper isprovide a more comprehensive picture of the education system in Ethiopia on top of philosophical scrutiny of past and current education reforms. In analyzing education reforms, the paper draws on indigenous philosophical orientation and the values of Ubuntu. The paper argues that the reforms introduced during regime changes are short of pledging an indigenous knowledge base. As indigenous education is based on sound philosophical foundations, the paper further argues that the proposed philosophical foundation can easily fit with the culture and lifestyle of the community being considered.
