Boyd, Bill; Grant, Aidre – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
The paper reflects whether it is too much to ask for a 'compassionate' university. It is an opinion piece as a response about how to make a shift against narratives that oppress, and how to respond positively to the 'compelling need for compassionate academic leadership in our universities' (Waddington, 2018, p.87). The authors draw on writers…

van Jaarsveldt, Lisa C.; de Vries, Michiel S.; Kroukamp, Hendri J. – Teaching Public Administration, 2019
The decolonialisation of the higher education curriculum and free higher education were two of the burning issues during student protests that erupted across universities in South Africa at the end of 2015.

It looks specifically at the making and institutionalisation of the School Board Act (SBA) of 1905 of the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope. It argues that the SBA…

Walters, Shirley; von Kotze, Astrid – Studies in the Education of Adults, 2019
Discourses on adult learning and education (ALE) and in particular the GRALE Report generally have limited coverage of popular education as part of its ecology.

Westaway, Lise – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2019
The advent of a democratically-elected government in South Africa in 1994 disrupted the erstwhile synchrony between the schooling system, teacher education system, curriculum and pedagogy.
