Long, Caroline; Graven, Mellony; Sayed, Yusuf; Lampen, Erna – Contemporary Education Dialogue, 2017
The South African people have a history of resistance to domination, injustice and inequality. It is therefore surprising that there has been an increase in social inequality, since the start of political democracy in 1994.
