Abstract:This book presents a collection of fifteen essays on different aspects of education in Gauteng, South Africa, since the advent of democracy in 1994. The essays shed light on aspects of how a provincial department operates and why and with what consequences certain decisions have been made in education over the last twenty years, both nationally and provincially. Each essay is written by one or more specialists in the relevant focus area. The book consists of four parts: Policy and planning, with contributions by Shireen Motala, Seán Morrow and Yusuf Sayed; Implementation frameworks and systems, with contributions by Felix Maringe, AD Padayachee, Anusha Naidu and Tom Waspe, Raj Mestry, Gugu Nyanda, Zakhele Mbokazi, and Francine de Clercq and Yael Shalem; Implementation processes, with contributions by Tony Bush, Lorayne Excell, Elizabeth Walton, Edward French and Barbara Dale-Jones, Anthony Gewer and Makano Morojele, and Jane Hofmeyr; Interventions to improve schools, their measurement and assessment of impact, with contributions by Nicholas Spaull, and Veerle Dieltiens and Brian Mandipaza.
