Purpose: The purpose of this module is to provides students with an understanding of the South African education system as a dynamic and evolving social construct. Building on the discussion in "Theoretical Frameworks", the module explores how different interests shaped the apparent purpose and form of the education system in the colonial, apartheid and early democratic period to provide a framework for understanding current challenges. It then provides an overview of the professional, legislative, resourcing and performance guidelines and indicators that influence current practice and seeks to provide students with the ability to anticipate and contribute to positive transformation.
