An Overview of Education Management in South Africa
Moloi, Kholeka; Bush, Tony
Management in Education, v20 n5 p15-22 2006
In this paper the authors examine three main issues, which are directly linked to school management developments in South Africa since 1994: (1) school leadership and management; (2) professionalization of principalship through the South African Standard for Principalship (SASP); and (3) leading and managing the learning school. In exploring these issues they draw mainly on a systematic and comprehensive literature review of school leadership, management and governance, commissioned by the Matthew Goniwe School of Leadership and Governance (MGSLG). The aim of the desk research was to establish "what is known" and "what still needs to be known" about educational leadership, management and governance in South Africa. They also draw upon the work of the Education Management Task Team (EMTT), 2004-2006, which was commissioned by the Directorate of Education Management and Governance Development in the National Department of Education.
