Challenges Facing South Africa's Educational Advancement
Nkoane, Molebatsi Milton
International Journal of Educational Advancement, v6 n3 p243-252 May 2006
In recent years, South African higher education institutions (HEIs) have experienced unprecedented change. Radical restructuring has taken place across the country with almost all HEIs affected. This paper argues that while such radical reform initiatives were in fact necessary for the advancement of higher education in South Africa, it also had several unintended outcomes that need to be addressed. The state-driven project of merging institutions has presented dynamic challenges that threaten progress and desired advancement.
