An Analysis of Educational Challenges in the New South AfricaBook - 1997
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.
