Blake, Beverley; Mestry, Raj – South African Journal of Education, 2021
Major political changes since 1994 have initiated the pace of change in the South African education system.

Vos, Elize; Fouché, Nadine – South African Journal of Education, 2021
Language is a contextual factor of an education system as it determines the Language of Learning and Teaching (LOLT).

Obadire, Olufunmilayo Tenidade; Sinthumule, Dzivhonele Albert – South African Journal of Education, 2021
Learner discipline is one of the bases of effective teaching and learning. If learners are not well disciplined, schools will not provide the best possible education.

Ramalepa, Tshiamo N.; Ramukumba, Tendani S.; Masala-Chokwe, Mmajapi E. – South African Journal of Education, 2021
The South African Schools Act 84 of 1996 forbids discrimination against learners based on pregnancy, while the 2007 guideline document, "Measures for Prevention and Management of Learner Pregnancy," stipulates teachers' role in preventing and managing learner pregnancy. Teachers are, therefore, responsible for pregnant learners in the…

With the promulgation of the South African Schools Act of 1996, public education in South Africa was decentralised and communities were made responsible for school governance.
