Johnson, David, Ed.
This book contains a collection of papers written by students involved in the Educational Management Project for South Africa. The project was established to introduce selected South Africans to theories and practices in educational management in an international comparative context. The papers focus on priorities for educational change and restructuring in South Africa. In particular, the themes include issues in the management of education, policy formation, and educational improvement. Following the foreword by the Norwegian ambassador to the United Nations, Martin Huslid, and the introduction by David Johnson, the papers are as follows: (1) "Educational Decentralisation and Participation" (Yusef Sayed and Debbie Fletcher); (2) "Policy Perspectives on Educational Governance--A Critique" (Fred Barron and Michael Crossley); (3) "The Efficacy of Paired Reading in South African Primary Schools" (Dickie Smith and David Johnson); (4) "Teacher Involvement in Decision Making" (Baatile Poo and Eric Hoyle); (5) "Integrating the Schools: A View from the Classroom" (Sivan Pather and David Johnson); (6) "Management Development Support for Head Teachers of Secondary Schools" (Phuti Tsukudu and Peter Taylor); (7) "Approaches to Head Teacher Training" (Cindy Mashinini and Bob Smith); (8) "The Technikon in a Democratic South Africa" (Redvers Miller); and (9) "An Annotated Bibliography of Educational Research on South Africa, 1980-1993" (John Chalufu and David Johnson).
