Exclusion and Education in South Africa: An Education Law Perspective of Emerging Alternative Understandings of Exclusion
Beckmann, Johan
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (14th, Sofia, Bulgaria, Jun 14-17, 2016)
The new democratic dispensation in South Africa (1994) was accompanied by law and policy aimed at preventing unfair exclusion from educational opportunities and promoting equal access to educational opportunities. However, feelings of unfair exclusion remain and new understandings of exclusion are emerging. This paper examines the new policy and law introduced after 1994 some emerging understandings of exclusion. The paper points out that the "new" exclusion is difficult to conceptualize and address. Addressing the challenges posed by them might be more difficult than was the case with exclusion under apartheid rule. [For the complete Volume 14, Number 1 proceedings, see ED568088.]
