Abstract:This volume sets out the challenges facing the South African education system from kindergarten (grade R) to grade 12, such as poor school infrastructure, poor learning conditions, and a lack of learning materials. It has chapters on: rural schools (M. Ndandani ); farm schools (K.B. Molokoe and M. Ndandani ); schooling and poverty (M. Ndandani); learner rights and public schools (A. Shumba); school violence (M.H. Behle and H. Sehlapelo); educator motivation and morale (R. Chireshe and A. Makura); teaching practice by student-educators (M. Ndandani); implementing inclusive education (E.K. Materechera); communities' contribution to school success or failure (R.J. Monobe and N.M. Morake); management development needs for school principals (I.R. Mathibe and M.W. Legotlo). In order to overcome the multiple challenges it is recommended to: 1. expand equitable access and fight poverty; 2. ruralize the school curriculum; 3. improve the quality and delivery of learning materials; 4. improve the morale of educators; 5. address farm school issues; 6. protect learners' rights; 7. strategize to address school violence; 8. decide on inclusive education issues; 9. improve school-community relations; and 10. improve management development of school principals.
