Mfuthwana, Thembeka; Dreyer, Lorna M. – South African Journal of Education, 2018
The international debate on colonisation is gaining momentum, primarily in the Americas, Africa and Australasia. Recent incidents in South Africa, such as the Fallist movement and the protest over rules on black girls' hair at certain schools, have sparked renewed debates on (de-)colonisation in the education system. It has become critical that…

Amasa, Ndofirepi; Thokozani, Mathebula – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2011
Historically, the concept 'child' has a Lockean (1960) connotation, as empty slates, new born infants are considered weak and helpless, until the improvement of growth and age has removed this deficient state of childhood. In modern societies, including South Africa, children are still viewed as citizens-in-waiting, and as citizens who need to be…

le Roux, Adré – South African Journal of Education, 2014
Despite fundamental reforms to South African education, large performance gaps still prevail between former black schools and former white schools.

Sappleton, Shan J.; Adams, Doug – Professional Educator, 2022
US education is hardly divorced from systemic societal inequalities. Utilizing the cases of the English-speaking Caribbean and post-apartheid South Africa decolonization efforts, we engage the settler coin concept to interrogate the popular notion that we can achieve systemic change in the US without fundamentally transforming the education…

Badaru, Kazeem Ajasa; Adu, Emmanuel Olusola – Research in Social Sciences and Technology, 2021
Being politically aware and participating in politics are essential determinants of a society's democratic survival. One source of concerns for researchers of political behavior regarding post-apartheid South Africa is the low rates of youth's political participation. There is however a dearth of empirical studies in the extant literature on the…

Mthembu, Ntokozo – Open Journal for Educational Research, 2019
The post-apartheid era in South Africa was intended to be a period in which to redress past injustices in almost all social spheres, including education, particularly in terms of curriculum transformation to include African-centered knowledge systems. However, research reveals the limitations posed by compensatory education, particularly when it…

Deitle, Kevin; Lee, Daniel – International Journal of Education Policy and Leadership, 2021

Beckmann, Johan – Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, 2021
Since the 1960s and before the dramatic announcement of the release of Nelson Mandela on 2 February 1990 (signalling the end of apartheid and the crossing of the proverbial Rubicon (Stone, 2014, p. 3)), the international community assisted the African National Congress (ANC) in its struggle against apartheid and put crucial pressure on the state…

Shinga, Sibongile; Pillay, Ansurie – South African Journal of Education, 2021
In post-apartheid South Africa, 11 languages, including English and indigenous languages, were given equal status as official languages. Yet, more than 25 years after democracy, Black parents still believe that their children's wealth and success depend on English, and therefore, send them to English-medium schools where they take English as a…

Smith, Juliana Maria – Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, 2018
The nature of teacher education in South Africa and institutions of higher learning, like the University of the Western Cape (UWC), is reflected by the country's history. The history of the Faculty of Education is intimately tied up with the anti-apartheid and social reconstructionist history of UWC and the apartheid policies of educational…

Ndimande, Bekisizwe S. – Global Education Review, 2016
This paper examines the consequences of the new policies of school choice in post-apartheid South Africa and the reasons they have largely failed to achieve greater educational equality--their stated purpose. I argue that the dominant reason for this lies in the continuing inadequate resources of many poor schools and the failure to address them.…

Mayisela, Simangele – South African Journal of Education, 2021
Detention as a method of disciplining children in South African schools has been mandated by the post-apartheid legislative abolition of corporal punishment. Educators have traditionally used corporal punishment to discipline children since the inception of schooling in colonial times. In this article I report on a qualitative case study conducted…
