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.

Amasa, Ndofirepi; Thokozani, Mathebula – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2011

In modern societies, including South Africa, children are still viewed as citizens-in-waiting, and as citizens who need to be…

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…

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.

Msila, Vuyisile – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2013
Arguably, one of the major achievements in the 1990s in South Africa was the final toppling of apartheid government and the triumph of democracy over the unjust and unequal past legislation. Since then schools are some of the institutions that have infused democracy ideals into their policies, curriculum and other aspects of school life. The…

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.
