Abstract

Schools in South Africa have become more diverse, posing new challenges for teachers and teacher education. This diversity is multifaceted, encompassing racial, class and gender. In October 2002, a range of institutions and collaborators identified three new areas for research into diversity in education: patterns of enrolment; representation in school textbooks; and how teacher education addresses diversity in schools. LINDA CHISHOLM and MOKUBUNG NKOMO present some of the preliminary findings.
