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).

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

Maistry, Suriamurthee Moonsamy; Africa, Ian Edward – South African Journal of Education, 2020
The South African school education landscape is distinctly uneven as it relates to school financing. The state's attempt at differentiated funding via the quintile system is vaunted as an initiative to address the needs of poor schools. It parades as a commitment to a redress agenda. Since implementation, the socioeconomic demography has changed…

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…

Coetzee, Daniella – South African Journal of Education, 2019
If the intention of South African education legislation is to professionalise teachers, and if this is seen as empowering them for their task, connected to quality education, then it is indeed a worthy ideal.
