Title:Black schooling in South Africa: notes towards a reinterpretation of the schooling, of the indigenous peoples in South Africa
Author:Collins, C.B.
Periodical:Africa Perspective
Geographic term:South Africa
Subjects:educational history
black education
Abstract:The radical interpretation has not covered the entirety of South African history: in the sphere of the history of education or schooling, the best known texts are written in the broad liberal paradigm. This article is not an elaboration of the radical paradigm but the application of some of its more simple tenets to the pre-1953 history of indigenous schooling in South Africa. It shows that the Bantu Education Act (1953) emerges not as a radical break with missionary schooling but as a part of the ongoing saga of labour reproduction, although admittedly with different dramatis personae.
