Chronicling Educator Practices and Experiences in the Context of Democratic Schooling and Quality Education in South Africa
Mncube, Vusi; Harber, Clive
International Journal of Educational Development, v30 n6 p614-624 Nov 2010
An interview-based qualitative study was undertaken to explore the experiences and practices of educators in providing democratic schooling as a way of delivering quality education for learners in schools. The exploration looked at educators' understandings of the concept of democracy in schools, their understanding of the concept quality education and whether there is any link between democratic schooling and quality education. The findings suggest that there is a perceived link between democracy in schools and the delivery of quality education for learners, even though there are tensions and contradictions in democratising schools.
