Abstract:This article deals with the challenges in the implementation of Education for All in South Africa as experienced by principals in rural secondary schools in Mpumalanga. Interventions which have been implemented at national and provincial level to improve teaching and learning are not equally successful in schools countrywide. Focus was on the management and leadership views of rural secondary school principals concerning their ability to ensure Education for All. A theoretical grounding of the situation was developed through a literature review. Interviews were conducted with principals in rural Mpumalanga to collect empirical data for the research. Two main aspects that emerged from the study were the impact that change, tradition and culture have on teaching and learning in rural secondary schools in Mpumalanga. Bibliogr., sum.
