Semeon, Nasimu; Mutekwe, Edmore – South African Journal of Education, 2021
The low enrolment, lack of interest, exacerbated by the general poor performance in physical science in South Africa paints a gloomy picture about the status of physical science in the country. Despite the fact that there might be other factors at play, one factor which cannot be ignored is the discourse about the use of language in the science…

Mogale, Makobo Lydia; Modipane, Mpho Calphonia – South African Journal of Education, 2021
Globally, policy implementation in the education system has been found to be a challenging area of development.

Moeketsane, Maribaneng; Jita, Loyiso; Jita, Thuthukile – South African Journal of Education, 2021

Mayeza, Emmanuel; Bhana, Deevia – South African Journal of Education, 2021
In this article, we draw on data from focus group discussions to examine the ways in which some young boys in a South African township primary school construct and negotiate hegemonic masculinity through bullying, and other forms of violence, within the school. Deviating from the simplistic victim-bully binary, we draw from critical masculinity…

van Zyl, André; Webb, Elizabeth M.; Wolvaardt, Jaqueline E. – South African Journal of Education, 2021
As a school subject, life orientation (LO) aims to improve learner well-being, but a lack of classroom resources may be a barrier. We investigated whether classroom resources were equally available for LO educators in fully funded (no-fee) and partially funded (fee-paying) high schools in Tshwane South, South Africa. In this analytical…

Milne, Annari; Mhlolo, Mike – South African Journal of Education, 2021

Meanwhile, Singaporean students have been among the top achievers in all these competitions. Many comparative studies have been done between…
