Walters, Shirley – South African Journal of Education, 2018
This paper considers the importance of 'in-between spaces' within the academy for challenging dominant institutional culture and hegemonic power relations towards a 'de-colonised' university. It questions 'mainstreaming' of transformational initiatives, as this can bring about regulation, rather than the turbulence that is often what is needed for…

Levy, Brian, Ed.; Cameron, Robert, Ed.; Hoadley, Ursula, Ed.; Naidoo, Vinothan, Ed. – Oxford University Press, 2018
All over the world, economic inclusion has risen to the top of the development discourse. A Oxford Scholarship Online well-performing education system is central to achieving inclusive development -- but the challenge of improving educational outcomes has proven to be unexpectedly difficult.

Graven, Mellony – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2016
In this article, South Africa provides an "outlier" case study that illuminates the tensions that exist between interventions, aimed at tailoring initiatives to the vastly unequal contexts of schooling, and the systemic "one size fits all" interventions of the state. I draw on the experiences of two teachers involved in an…

Langfield, Danielle – Journal of Political Science Education, 2016
The use of a real-world case in a classroom simulation--in contrast to invented or disguised cases--is not widely recognized as a "combination" of two common active-learning strategies in political science: teaching with a case study and conducting a simulation. I argue that using such a simulation therefore can provide the benefits of…

Robins, Steven Lance; Fleisch, Brahm – Education as Change, 2016
Hargreaves (2002) suggested that vigorous social movements have the potential to improve the quality of (and increase the equity in) public education.

Fullan, Michael – Journal of Educational Change, 2016
Whole system improvement--where the vast majority of schools improve--is difficult to achieve. Some jurisdictions use what turns out to be "wrong" policy drivers like testing and evaluation. Rather, success turns out to depend on changing the culture of schools and their relationship to the infrastructure of policies and regulation. I…

Teise, K.; le Roux, A. – Africa Education Review, 2016
Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is an educational approach that, by being a catalyst of social change, promotes sustainability. Although South African education policy and practice appear to be oriented towards ESD, the concept is contested, and ragged with ambiguity and vagueness. Because the transformation of South African education…

Govender, Logan – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2015
This article contends that teacher unions' participation in policy making during South Africa's political transition was characterised by assertion of ideological identity (unionism and professionalism) and the cultivation of policy networks and alliances. It is argued that, historically, while teacher unions were divided along political and…

Parr, Graham; Chan, Jennifer – Teaching Education, 2015
Since the 1970s, international fieldwork has provided opportunities for small numbers of pre-service teachers to teach and learn in a culture different from their own. Research into this fieldwork suggests that pre-service teachers are positive about their experiences, although questions remain about the ethics underpinning some of these programs.…

de Villiers, Alethea – British Journal of Music Education, 2015
In this paper I reflect on transformation in South African education policy, post-1994. The new curriculum for schools was underpinned by the democratic values of the constitution and was a time of renewal for music education. However, over time as the original curriculum documents were revised, the focus of promoting indigenous traditions was…
