What to expect from this site


The contributors are passionate about History of Education!

Some people (including some education academics) think History of Education is 'unnecessary' and even 'a waste of time'.

We wholeheartedly disagree

To understand the present, and move into the future, we have to understand the past.  History of Education affords one the opportunity to understand how and why the South African education system is the way it is.  

We thus aim to provide you with up-to-date information, that will assist you as a student studying History of Education. 

Thank you to all those students who have signed the guest book, and who have written encouraging words.  If you would like to see something on the website, please let us know by emailing us.
