Learning to Teach in South Africa is a collection of essays by one of South Africas most respected thinkers in education. The essays span the crucial years of democratic transition in South Africa and show the consitency of Morrow's thinking over this period. He argues for the retrieval of the primacy of the practice of professional teaching in our thinking about the transformation of schooling and education in South Africa, reveals the emergence of his seminal distinction between formal and epistemological access, puts forward some definitive views about teacher education, and continues to struggle with relativism, one of the strands of the legacies of colonialism and apartheid.
Learning to Teach in South Africa is an intellectually flavoursome, essential read for anyone interested in the transformation of education, and especially those who have a role in shaping its future.
