Academic interaction with social partners
Investigating the contribution of universities to economic and social development
Glenda Kruss, Genevieve Haupt, Mariette Visser, Mogau Aphane

A lively debate on the relationship between the university and society in a developing country like South Africa is emerging. Academic Interaction looks at the main results of a research study on university interaction with external social partners. It centres on definitional boundaries around whether engagement requires new forms of knowledge that differ from traditional academic modes and around who is defined as 'the community' – at local, regional, national or international levels. There is general agreement that the field is conceptually under-specified and theoretically rather thin.

Ambitions Revised
Ambitions Revised
Grade 12 learner destinations one year on
Michael Cosser , Sekinah Sehlola

This monograph is the sequel to Studying Ambitions: Pathways from grade 12 and the factors that shape them, which investigated the aspirations for future study and/or work of 20 659 grade 12 learners across South Africa in 2005. Ambitions Revised: Grade 12 learner destinations one year on tracks the same cohort of learners into their destinations one year later. Of particular interest to the research team was the sub-set of those who enrolled in teacher education programmes. The extremely low levels of interest in teaching first observed in a similar 2002 HSRC study are confirmed here – a finding which has implications for sustainable teacher supply and for the health of an education system upon which the future of the country depends.

Beginner Teachers in South Africa
Beginner Teachers in South Africa
School Readiness, Knowledge and Skills
Fabian Arends, Makola Phurutse

Despite a strong emphasis on teacher education and development in post-apartheid South Africa, statistics show a low retention of beginner teachers in the teaching profession. This trend has serious implications for learner outcomes, given the contribution teachers can and should make to learner achievement.

Beyond Benchmarks
Beyond Benchmarks
What twenty years of TIMSS data tell us about South African education
Vijay Reddy, Tia Linda Zuze, Mariette Visser, Lolita Winnaar, Andrea Juan, Cas Prinsloo, Fabian Arends, Shawn Rogers
South Africa has participated in a number of local and international achievement studies in the field of education over the last 20 years and responses to the results have been somewhat mixed. Critics argue that participation in international assessments is a pointless exercise because of the slow pace of improvement in South African education. Supporters point out that international assessment results can be useful at many different levels of policy and planning, especially when studies are repeated across time. The purpose of this book is to provide a measured assessment of what has been achieved in South African education over the last 20 years based on the evidence provided by Trends in International Mathematics and Science Studies (TIMMS), to redefine what ‘good’ progress means in light of South Africa’s developmental pathway and to recommend what evidence based interventions can be considered as the next realistic steps in South Africa’s educational development.

Books and Babies
Books and Babies
Pregnancy and young parents in schools
Robert Morrell, Deevia Bhana , Tamara Shefer

Being pregnant and a young parent in South African schools is not easy. Books and Babies examines why this is the case. Drawing on both quantitative and qualitative research conducted in secondary schools in Durban and Cape Town, the book explores how teachers and principals respond to the presence of pregnant learners and young parents in school, and surveys the attitudes of fellow learners towards them. Interviews with the young parents themselves yield rich narratives which, accompanied by a visual essay, invite the reader into their lives as they confront the demands of pregnancy, parenting and school. Books and Babies provides a finely textured analysis of these demands and shows the ongoing need to challenge the unequal and gendered load of pregnancy and parenting, both in schools and the broader social context.

Community, self and identity
Community, self and identity
Educating South African university students for citizenship
Leibowitz, Swartz, Bozalek, Carolissen, Nicholls, Rohleder

Education in South Africa is in crisis. Low literacy and numeracy rates, poor discipline, and a sense of despair pervade the education landscape. At the same time, educators are called upon to achieve more, with universities tasked to produce graduates capable of exercising responsible and reflective citizenship in a competitive and globalising world. However, universities face very complex demands and resource constraints. In this sobering context, this book provides an opportunity to learn from a bold experiment in teaching and learning taking place across two very different South African universities, one historically black, and one historically white and Afrikaans.
