Abstract

Engaging, energetic and frequently surprising in its informational scope, Changing Class offers a frank and challenging review of education and social change in post-apartheid South Africa. Recently launched in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, it brings together a vibrant and compelling set of studies by both leading scholars and exciting new writers, all of which tackle key education issues. The broad-reaching compilation covers topics that have an immediate, contemporary resonance. The scope includes examination of the school fee structure, integration and multilingualism in schools, curriculum changes, teacher education and unions, the position of education NGOs, assessment and qualification frameworks, and the state of adult basic education.
