Abstract

Should government become more directive and once again prescribe how schools should be managed or should we treasure the autonomy and democratic system of our school governing bodies? Or, is it time to redesign the entire system? Experts raised these questions at a recent HSRC seminar about South Africa's education legislation and policy. Antoinette Oosthuizen reports.
