Lumadi, Rudzani Israel – South African Journal of Education, 2020
The disparity in the socio-economic status of South Africa has forced the government to adopt a funding policy for public secondary schools. The policy is based on funding schools considered to be poor because they are in poverty-stricken communities. Most of these schools lack infrastructure, and physical and financial resources to be run…

Naicker, Inbanathan; Myende, Phumlani Erasmus; Ncokwana, Zamokwakhe Thandinkosi – South African Journal of Education, 2020
Drawing on the quintile system of categorising schools, South African public schools are bifurcated into no-fee and fee-paying schools. Emerging research has shown that school principals in both categories of schools encounter several challenges with regard to school funding. In this article, we employ contingency leadership theory to examine how…

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…

Murphy, P. Karen; Ebersöhn, Liesel; Omidire, Funke; Firetto, Carla M. – South African Journal of Education, 2020
The nature of discourse within classrooms strongly predicts students' ability to think about, around, and with text and content (i.e. comprehension and critical-analytic thinking). However, little is known about the nature of classroom discourse in remote, rural South African schools, a context in which students face well-documented language…

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…

Dube, Bekithemba; Tsotetsi, Cias – South African Journal of Education, 2020
In this article, we problematise the practice of appointing principals on the basis of comradeship instead of excellence, qualifications and competency. The appointment of principals in South Africa has, over the years, become politicised and unionised to the extent that it is contextualised within comradeship narratives, thereby negating the…
