Jansen, Jonathan D.
Journal of Education Policy, v17 n2 p199-215 Mar-Apr 2002
Seeks to determine why policies designed to change apartheid education in South Africa resulted in very little change in school and classroom practice; draws on data from seven case studies of educational reform to explain the gap between policy and practice; develops partial theory of political symbolism to explain the lack of real reform.
