de Klerk, Edwin Darrell; Palmer, June Monica; Papashane, Maseeeng – South African Journal of Education, 2021

An earlier paper focused on how born-free learners constitute, negotiate and represent their identities after almost two and half decades of democracy in South Africa.

Buys, Melanie; du Plessis, Pierre; Mestry, Raj – South African Journal of Education, 2020
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. This placed the responsibility on school governing bodies (SGBs) to take all measures within their means to supplement state funding for the acquisition of adequate human…

Beckmann, Johan – South African Journal of Education, 2019
South African education has become used to dealing with an array of new policy and strategy initiatives. Often these policies and strategies appear on the scene only to disappear into the sand later on. When President Ramaphosa announced the Thuma mina initiative in February 2018, educationists would have been tempted to ask questions about the…

Nkambule, Gugulethu; Amsterdam, Christina – South African Journal of Education, 2018
This paper explores support in primary schools in a single South African school district. The literature suggests an increased need for educator support in South Africa due to a myriad of curricular changes in the aftermath of apartheid, as well as a teacher corps that is ill-prepared for the demands posed by curricular reform. Documented research…

This article is an attempt to bring theoretical concepts offered by decolonial theories into conversation with 'humanising pedagogy.'

Mahabeer, Pryah – South African Journal of Education, 2018
Over 21 years into democracy and the commitment for radical transformation in education, South Africa continues to adopt and adapt international imperatives and standardisations in pursuit of first world rankings. Ironically, notions of indigenisation, decolonisation and Africanisation of the curriculum have become catch words of the day. In the…

We live in a dynamic world, characterised by major economic, technological and social change.

The idea for this article was born out of…
