This book deals with current developments in black education in South Africa since the introduction of Bantu education in the beginning of the 1990s. During the period under discussion, improvements have been made in black education. These improvements are partly due to the significant political changes currently taking place in South Africa that are supposed to mark the end of apartheid. Despite these developments, much remains to be done in order to remedy the effects of Bantu education. In particular, providing quality education in black schools will require innovative solutions. Proper planning, developing new teaching strategies, establishing practical educational goals, and identifying and using available resources must be controlled and harnessed to a new social order. Collaboration and coordination of all professionals, particularly blacks, will be a necessity. The process of change requires black participation in finding solutions to their educational problems; this is one of the major challenges facing post-apartheid South Africa. It is evident that there are more challenges that the post-apartheid era will present. This book is aimed at providing tentative alternative solutions to black education.

The Changing Landscape of Colonial Education in Africa offers a detailed and nuanced perspective of colonial history, based on fifteen years of research, that throws fresh light on the complexities of African history and the colonial world of the first half of the twentieth century. It provides an analytical background to history of education in the colonial context by balancing contributions by missionary agencies, colonial government, humanitarian agencies, and scientific experts. The book offers a foundation for the analysis of modern educational policy for the post-colonial state. It attempts to move beyond clichés about colonial education to an understanding of the complexities of how educational policy was developed in different places at different times while giving credence to arguments which see schooling as a form of social control in the colonial environment. The book will be essential reading for academics, researchers and policy makers looking to better understand colonial education and contextualise modern developments related to the decolonising African education. It is intended to provide an essential background for policy makers by demonstrating the significance of a historical perspective for an understanding of contemporary educational challenges in Africa and elsewhere.

'What does politics have to do with it anyway? Why can't we just focus on the academic, professional and technical issues in teacher education - how best to prepare future teachers so that they can help children and youth learn and develop?' For Ginsburg and Lindsay, these questions reveal an incomplete understanding both of politics and teacher education. The general purpose of their book is to develop more fully our understanding so that we can ask more fruitful questions. To aid this process the volume combines in a coherent and compelling way the work of scholars with a range of disciplinary approaches, theoretical perspectives and societal experiences. The range of countries covered in this volume - in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and the Pacific - offers insights on the topic that might not otherwise be recognized in case studies of countries that tend to be reported in the literature.

Conflicts in schools over race, fees or language frequently make headlines in South Africa. Such conflicts reflect the multifaceted issue of learner diversity, encompassing racial, class, gender, religious, linguistic, physical and other differences. The need to handle such differences in equitable ways poses new challenges for teachers and teacher education. How are teacher education institutions preparing students for teaching in schools that are different from the ones they experienced as learners? What kinds of skills are they providing to enable teachers to deal with diversity and difference amongst learners.

Since 1994, there have been major attempts to change educational policy in order to meet the economic demands of South Africa and equalize education for all. Implementation of this policy is the big challenge. Through critical commentary and analysis, this book brings into focus the various policy documents that have been produced since the early 1990s. It looks at the history of education policy, why coherent policy is necessary, how it should be implemented and, most critical of all, it discusses the importance of education management and delivery.

Schooling the New South deftly combines social and political history, gender studies, and African American history into a story of educational reform. James Leloudis recreates North Carolina's classrooms as they existed at the turn of the century and explores the wide-ranging social and psychological implications of the transition from old-fashioned common schools to modern graded schools. He argues that this critical change in methods of instruction both reflected and guided the transformation of the American South. According to Leloudis, architects of the New South embraced the public school as an institution capable of remodeling their world according to the principles of free labor and market exchange. By altering habits of learning, they hoped to instill in students a vision of life that valued individual ambition and enterprise above the familiar relations of family, church, and community. Their efforts eventually created both a social and a pedagogical revolution, says Leloudis. Public schools became what they are today--the primary institution responsible for the socialization of children and therefore the principal battleground for society's conflicts over race, class, and gender.

This report is an integration of the seven reports which emerged from the research, and pulls together the findings arising from it. What emerges is that the resignation, death and ageing of the present educator force is likely to have a significant effect on replacement demand for educators over the next four years.
