Academics as well as educational and academic development practitioners often find themselves in an ambiguous space in which personal and professional transformation can take place.

Swarts, P.; Rens, J. A.; de Sousa, L. O. – Perspectives in Education, 2018
An analysis of the National Curriculum Statement indicates a strong focus on the promotion of knowledge in local context, whilst being sensitive to global imperatives.

Gumbo, Mishack T. – Perspectives in Education, 2018
Technology Education was introduced and rolled out in South African schools in 1998. It has been twenty years since its implementation, yet it is being confused with other traditional subjects.

Pillay, Daisy; Ngubane, Sithembiso – Perspectives in Education, 2018
Going beyond the static, dangerous version of a single story about who an African child inmate is, is an ethical responsibility -- especially when we consider the structural and material forces that are tangled in this evil deed. Drawing on a sociological framing of self and Foucault's theory of ethics, we take a narrative inquiry stance to…

In this paper, we draw on a recent ethnographic study in a rural primary school to illustrate the ways that vestiges of colonialism remain deeply imbricated in contemporary schooling in Ghana.
