Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Teaching in the New South Africa at Merrydale High School is a case study of the lingering social impact of apartheid and education policies implemented since 1994 when black majority rule was attained in South Africa.

Book News Annotation:

Based on the author's doctoral dissertation, this book provides a look into the state of education in South Africa through a case study of Merrydale High School, a working class community school in the Western Cape Province. Weber (education, U. of Pretoria, South Africa) gives background on the study of teaching in South Africa, discusses the apartheid system and its social influences on unequal education, reviews the educational reform initiatives, describes his methodology, and analyzes the school culture and classroom practices of Merrydale High School. Questions examined include how reform affected teachers, school governance, the curriculum and pedagogy of select teachers, and advocating non-racialism.
