Synopsis

Elusive equity documents South Africa's efforts to create a racially equitable state education system from the ashes of apartheid education. The authors describe and evaluate the strategies that South African policy makers have pursued in their quest for equity. They draw on previously unpublished data, interviews with key officials, and visits to dozens of schools to describe the changes made to school financing, teacher allocation, governance, curriculum, and other areas. The title combines the perspective observations of an experienced education journalist with the analytical skills of an academic policy expert. Descriptions of how South Africa's education reforms have affected schools at grassroots level are combined with careful analysis of enrolment, governance, and budget data at school, provincial, and national levels. The result is a compelling and comprehensive study of the first decade of education reform in the post-apartheid period.
