The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:
The History of Education Under Apartheid 1948-1994, edited by Peter Kallaway.
This collection of 19 essays stems from two scholarly workshops held during 1998 and 1999, as part of a project initiated by the Centre for Education Policy Development. The project's goal was to stimulate critical evaluation of the nature and direction of contemporary education policy discourse and practice in South Africa by examining education under the apartheid years. Coverage includes the origins, construction, and experience of apartheid education; popular resistance and alternative education during the 1970s, 80s and 90s; first-hand accounts of the everyday lives, practices and experiences of teachers and students; new sources of traditional research in the history of education; and the identities of historical actors and institutions.
