Left behind in a Democratic Society: A Case of Some Farm School Primary Schoolteachers of Natural Science in South Africa
Bantwini, Bongani D.; Feza, Nosisi N.
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v20 n3 p312-327 2017
This case study explores the plight of some farm schoolteachers in a school district in the Eastern Cape province, South Africa and their feelings of neglect in the new democratic society. Through interviews and a teaching observation analysis, this article focuses on five teachers and discusses resource and infrastructure challenges, lack of vision and educational value, lack of parental involvement and role models. It is concluded that farm schools are still neglected, and it is thus imperative that the new educational policies should be implemented fairly across the various types of schools existing in South Africa.
