In Search of Best Practice in South African Desegregated Schools
In Search of Best Practice in South African Desegregated Schools
Mokubung Nkomo, Saloshna Vandeyar

One of the daunting challenges facing South Africa in the contemporary period is that of achieving social cohesion. Educational institutions should be at the cutting edge of the project to weave a common identity whilst promoting respect for difference. It was this challenge that motivated us to convene colloquia in 2003 and 2006 to discuss the current state of school desegregation and innovative ways to forge ahead in the complex processes of dismantling the legacies of the past and creating inclusive paradigms for our classrooms.

Independent Schooling in Post-Apartheid South Africa
Independent Schooling in Post-Apartheid South Africa
A quantitive overview
Jacques L Du Toit
This paper presents a quantitative overview of the South African independent schooling sector. Some popular myths about the sector being largely white and elitist are dispelled by the study. However, there is also evidence of poor performance and new forms of inequity emerging of which role-players in the sector should be aware.

Knowledge, curriculum and qualifications for South African Further Education
Knowledge, curriculum and qualifications for South African Further Education
Michael Young, Jeanne Gamble (eds)
All countries, and South Africa is no exception, face acute dilemmas in modernising their systems of upper secondary and further education and training. Faced with pressures from the fast changing world of work, this education sector has become characterized by political slogans stressing skill development, improved access and participation, and the accountability of providers through some form of market. On the other hand, the phenomenon of ‘academic drift’ reveals that students increasingly see their future as progressing to higher education. Policymakers attempt to resolve these competing demands by calling for transferable, portable outcomes and qualifications as the new currency of an increasingly market-type system.

Learning / Work
Learning / Work
Turning work and lifelong learning inside out
Linda Cooper, Shirley Walters (eds)

We are living through a daunting yet fascinating period in which the global economy increasingly challenges the accepted dichotomies between home-life and work-life, between employment and unemployment, paid work and unpaid work. This calls for serious analysis of how knowledge is generated, both formally and informally, in workplaces as diverse as the factory, the field, or the street. It raises questions about what forms of learning and training are involved; how they articulate with one another and what practical and theoretical implications this has for our societies.
