Critical teacher education for democratic citizenship in South Africa and England


This book is designed primarily for teachers in training, and initial teacher education tutors, although anyone interested in the values and principles underpinning education would also find it useful.

The book focuses on comparing and contrasting the British education system with that of post-apartheid South Africa, especially within the context of Citizenship education. Several themes are covered, for example: democracy, the aims of education, environmental education and gender. Along with documentary texts, and historical data, there are several discussion and question ideas, for teachers to consider.

The book is a fascinating insight into the values and ideologies behind two different education systems.
