Abstract

The democratic movement in South Africa bravely and idealistically planned for post apartheid transformation. Fundamental reconstruction of the education system in line with the democratic instincts of the anti-apartheid movement was a key part of that transformational planning. The essays collected in this book give some insight into the breadth and depth of thinking and debate that were involved. More importantly, it is a timely assessment of how the constraining realities of post-apartheid South Africa are being dealt with.
