Education and Transition: An Annotated Select Bibliography.
This bibliography compiles works that convey the scope and depth of the transition in South African education, as well as a range of perspectives and positions. Although not an exhaustive list, it gathers together significant national government policy documents, especially those of the Department of Education; stakeholder position papers; the insights of intellectuals who, in most cases, have been intimately involved in the process; and sources that are often inaccessible through normal computer-based searches. Entries have been grouped into three sections: government-policy documents and statements; stakeholder positions; and the critical responses of researchers, academics, and individual observers. Within each section, a simple classification provides access to items on a particular aspect of the education system. Each subsection is arranged alphabetically by author or, in the case of government publications, by title. Some of the types of documents that are annotated include policy statements, annual reports, governance papers, resources for learning, racial-integration reports, specialized-education and support-services documents, and articles on educator development. At the close of the bibliography, some titles of monthly and quarterly periodicals that focus on education are included. These publications record and/or analyze the unfolding events of educational transformation in South Africa. (RJM)
