An empirical study of student mathematics learning in Grade 6 classrooms in Botswana and South Africa, and an exploration of why students in south-eastern Botswana seem to be doing better than those in North West Province, South Africa.

"'The Low Achievement Trap' looks at an intriguing puzzle: why students in one community learn mathematics at much higher levels than similar students just a few miles away. The researchers analyse in detail the teaching-learning process in classrooms, as well as the very different policy contrasts that influence these schools. The result is a powerful analysis of what matters in teaching - and how it can be improved." Linda Darling Hammond, Stanford University

Chetty (N.) & Merrett (C.) THE STRUGGLE FOR THE SOUL OF A SOUTH AFRICAN UNIVERSITY, the University of KwaZulu-Natal, academic freedom, corporatisation and transformation
235 pp., paperback, No Place, 2013. R245
Foreword by Jane Duncan.

Nithaya Chetty and Christopher Merrett describe attempts by the leadership of the University of Kwaulu-Natal during Malegapuru William Makgoba's tenure, to effect "transformation from the top", and outline the attempts by academics, including the authors, to resist this form of transformation.

"This book is an un-put-downabe-read. It tells the sad story of the destruction of a great South African institution by the false equation of racial transformation with neo-conservative capitalism and incompetent, egocentric leadership in an area vital to the country's future." Peter Vale, Chair of Humanities, University of Johannesburg & Nelson Mandela Chair of Politics Emeritus

Christopher Merrett is a journalist at The Witness in Pietermaritzburg.
Chisholm (L.) BETWEEN WORLDS, German missionaries and the transition from mission to Bantu Education in South Africa
265pp., illus., maps, paperback, Johannesburg, 2017. R380
"In "Between Worlds Linda Chisholm meticulously and with great sensitivity dissects how one mission society, the German Hermannsburg Mission Society, parleyed its decision to remain within the state system in the shift from mission to Bantu Education, in creative and important ways. The book is a detailed portrait of the Hermannsburg Mission’s education work, but also a critical and insightful commentary on a set of broader questions, reflecting off the current political moment in South Africa." Professor Natasha Erlank, Historical Studies, University of Johannesburg

"Linda Chisholm’s account of German Lutheran missionaries’ school and teacher education work in South Africa disrupts conventional understandings of the role of missionaries in the development of South Africa’s education system. Drawing on extensive archival research in South Africa and Germany, the history of the largely ignored Hermannsburg Mission reveals the ambiguities and contradictions which marked their complex relationships with local communities and the colonial and apartheid state." Volker Wedekind, School of Education, University of Nottingham

Linda Chisholm is Professor in the Centre for Education Rights and Transformation at the University of Johannesburg. Her other books include "Changing Class: education and social change in post-apartheid South Africa"
Coetzee (C.) ACCENTED FUTURES, language activism and the ending of apartheid
192 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2013. R320
"For Carli Coetzee, 'accentedness' is a description for actively working towards the ending of apartheid by being aware of the legacies of the past, without attempting to empty out or gloss over the conflicts and violence that may exist under the surface...she argues that difference and disagreement can be forms of activism to bring about social change, inside and outside the teaching environment." from the back cover

"'Accented Futures' provides an analysis of a wide range of texts, including literature, university seminars and art works. The ideas explored are evocative, thought-provoking, expansive and challenging. 'Accent' indexes a nuance, an attitude, a critical reading position, a local orientation - a way of thinking about the complexities of 'home' that South Africans and others will find invaluable." Arlene Archer, Centre for Higher Education, University of Cape Town

"'Accented Futures' is a rare, courageous book that challenges teachers and knowledge-producers of all kinds to consider deeply, and critique, our own practice and context. In activist fashion, it also suggests ways in which we can all begin to do the work needed to respect and pay attention to the diverse and rich epistemologies and accents not only of contemporary South Africa, but Africa at large." Lindiwe Dovey, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London

Carli Coetzee is a Senior Teaching Fellow at SOAS, University of London, an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of the Witwatersrand, and an Associate Academic at HUMA, University of Cape Town.

261pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2015. R325
Partners for Possibility is an organisation that has brokered partnerships between business leaders and school principals to develop confidence, skills and competences.

"This inspiring new book about Partners for Possibility captures a compelling vision for educational change in a series of unforgettable stories. This deceptively simple idea that a principal of an under-resourced school partners with a business leader to design change solutions has proven to deliver tangible results in the lives of children and communities." Professor Jonathan Jansen, Rector and Vice-Chancellor, University of the Free State
Collyer (F.), Connell (R.), Maia (J.) & Morrell (R.) KNOWLEDGE AND GLOBAL POWER, making new sciences in the South
217pp., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2019. R350
First published in Australia.

"Knowledge and Global Power is a ground-breaking international study which examines how knowledge is produced, distributed and validated globally. The former imperial nations - the rich countries of Europe and North America - still have a hegemonic position in the global knowledge economy. Fran Collyer, Roewyn Connell, João Maia and Robert Morrell, using interviews, databases and fieldwork, show how intellectual workers respond in three Southern tier countries, Brazil, South Africa and Australia. The study focuses on new, socially and politically important research fields: HIV/AIDS, climate change and gender studies. The research demonstrates emphatically that 'place matters', that research and scholarship are shaped by global relationships. But it also shows that knowledge workers in the global South have room to move: they can set distinctive agendas and form local knowledge." Jonathan Jansen, Distinguished Professor of Education, University of Stellenbosch

Fran Collyer is Associate Professor at the University of Sydney.
Roewyn Connell is Professor Emerita at the University of Sydney.
João Maia teaches in the School of Social Sciences at Fundação Getulio Vargas, Rio de Janeiro.

Cooper (L.) & Ralphs (A.) eds. RPL AS SPECIALISED PEDAGOGY, crossing the lines
177pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2016. R400
This book offers a theoretical framework for understanding Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) "not simply as an assessment practice, but as a specialised pedagogy for navigating knowledge boundaries across different contexts." from the back cover

"The title 'RPL as Specialised Pedagogy' boldly states its unique contribution to the theory and practice of the Recognition of Prior Learning. By shifting the focus away from assessment, this work opens up a relatively under researched aspect of RPL. By using a common theoretical framework to investigate RPL in a range of contexts (higher education, workplace, and worker education), it represents a great leap forward in RPL research. Employing Cultural Historical Activity theory to interpret and unify findings from these diverse settings moves RPL research into the theoretical mainstream of current research in the broader field of workplace an adult learning." Dr Christine Wihak, Prior Learning International Research Consortium, Thompson Rivers University, Canada

185pp., paperback, Stellenbosch, 2015. R380
"One of the few educational sociologists in South Africa working with ethnographic methods, Fataar captures the complex interactions and dynamics between social life, school processes and youth subjectivity in townships in the Western Cape. Its approach to the troubled question of youth and subjectivity is enlightening, and vital to understanding the post-apartheid city and school. Insightfully wrought, the book fills a much-needed gap in educational sociology in South Africa." Linda Chisholm, Professor, Centre for Education Rights and Transformation, University of Johannesburg

"Aslam Fataar's work with concepts of mobilities and space is enormously generative, providing a way for teachers, principals, communities and policy makers to engage with the ‘complex ecologies’ of young people’s learning in urban schools. As an astute policy analyst, he also well knows the systemic barriers in the way of achieving this...This is an exciting and provocative book. It pushes an important conversation about the next phase of education in South Africa and takes the global conversation about pedagogical injustice to new dimensions." Professor Marie Brennan and Dr Lew Zipin, Victoria University, Melbourne

Aslam Fataar is the Vice-Dean: Research in the Faculty of Education at Stellenbosch University. He is President of the South African Education Research Association, and Editor-in-Chief of the Southern African Review of Education.

Gumbo (M.) & Msila (V.) eds. AFRICAN VOICES ON INDIGENISATION OF THE CURRICULUM, insights from practice
419pp., illus., paperback, Durban, 2017. R390
Introduction by Joseph Matowanyika.

"Discussions about new educational futurities for Africa need to anchor intellectual thoughts of African scholars themselves. This book does exactly that and, in so doing it opens up possibilities for genuine educational transformation in Africa. The situatedness of empirical case studies in the richness of theory makes this a critical read on African Indigeniety. Indigeniety has become central in dialogues about decolonisation and the ways we transform education to create multi-centric learning spaces. By contesting the historical, political, economic, spiritual and sociocultural particularities and peculiarities that have shaped how we come to know and disseminate knowledge in global spaces and in the age of transnational mobility, this collection achieves its goal." George J. Sefa Dei, Centre for Integrative Anti-Racism Studies, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto

First published in the UK in 2019.

Anne Heffernan considers the history of student organisations in the Northern Transvaal (today Limpopo Province) and the ways in which students there have influenced political change on a national scale.

"This is an elegant and incisive study of youth and student politics, which deepens understanding of the phenomenon as a whole and is highly original in its emphasis upon the importance of regional and local experiences within the national narrative." Colin Bundy, University of Oxford

Anne Hefferman is Assistant Professor in the History of Southern Africa at Durham University, UK, and Research Associate of the History Workshop, University of the Witwatersrand. She is co-editor of Students Must Rise: youth struggle in South Africa before and beyond Soweto '76.
Higgins (J.) ACADEMIC FREEDOM, in a democratic South Africa, essays and interviews on higher education and the humanities
272 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2013. R320
Foreword, in the form of a letter, by J.M.Coetzee.

"This book argues that the core content of academic freedom - the principle of supporting and extending open intellectual enquiry - is essential to realising the full public value of higher education, and emphasises the central role that the humanities, and the particular forms of argument and analysis they embody, bring to this task." from the back cover

"You will not find a more cogent and incisive account of the perilous state of the humanities in South Africa. John Higgins is unrivalled in his systematic unveiling of the threats to academic freedom and, in the end, to our quest to answer that very complex question: what does it mean to be human after apartheid?" Jonathan Jansen, Rector and Vice-Chancellor, University of the Free State

"In this fine collection of essays and interviews, Higgins raises a scrupulous and analytically acute set of concerns about the constraints that a government has begun to place on the academy in South Africa in order to promote its vision of politics and political economy; and he plausibly proposes a more central place to be given to the critical perspective offered by the humanities as a way of resisting these constraints." Akeel Bilgrami, Director, South Asian Studies, Columbia University

John Higgins is a member of the Academy of Science in South Africa, and a Professor of English at the University of Cape Town.

Hugo (W.) ed. CONCEPTUAL INTEGRATION, and educational analysis
151pp., illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2015. R270
A collection of essays that explain how conceptual integration works and provide practical examples that can help educators grasp how to apply the process in practice.

"It is not often that educational researchers and classroom practitioners can see each other in one common narrative. Hugo and his team do it systematically and accessibly. The chapters in this book build a novel practice language which draws on the sciences (cognitive inguistics) and stretches on to the insides of the pedagogical process, prises it open and excavates its inner workings. In this book pedagogues can recognise the conceptual process they take to elaborate, compress, infer and blend ideas." Yael Shalem, Wits School of Education, University of the Witwatersrand

"Through a detailed set of cases, the book provides a fascinating account of the working of a particular aspect of pedagogy that lies at the heart of educational transmission - the shift from the experiential knowledge of the student to a specialized understanding of a discipline." Ursula Hoadley, School of Education, University of Cape Town

"The dysfunctional interactions of poorly educated electorates, anarchic, impoverished students, insurgent nationalists, short-sighted governments and corrupted states - all poorly interpreted by weak mass media - erode the foundations of university systems operating amidst pervasive economic and social injustice. Exposing the nervous system of such deep-seated misery requires a rare combination of surgical skill, courage and compassion - qualities that Jonathan Jansen, easily the country's leading expert on education at all levels, has in abundance. Anyone wanting to know why South Africa's best universities are now set to become indistinguishable from the worst simply has to engage with this chilling - superb - study." Professor Charles van Onselen, University of Pretoria

The project aims to give students an opportunity to study the concepts of community, self and identity by interacting with peers across the divides of race, class, language and institution.

The inventive modular designs and the deep scholarly reflections on 'what happened and why' represent one of the best traditions of scholarship in the curriculum field. Despite the modesty of the editors, what is captured here offers hitherto unprecedented insights into how universities can challenge and change students, teachers and themselves. I am definitely prescribing this seminal text for my academics and students alike." Jonathan Jansen, Rector and Vice Chancellor of the University of the Free State.

They are finding place in schools but arriving is not translating into either personal or social benefit. Through analyses of issues such as repetition, over-agedness and the poor delivery of teaching this text puts into stark perspective the scale of the mountain South Africa has to climb.

This truly is a brave and timely book, overflowing with fresh perspectives and written by distinguished experts in the field." Tinyiko Maluleka, Professor of African Culture and Spirituality, University of Pretoria

"This book is timely. Its publication coincides with the uprising throughout South African universities, spurred by students' demand to decolonise the curriculum. The book is a welcome contribution to the ensuing debate on what ought to be the content of a curriculum in a post-apartheid university. It's a worthy read for anyone looking for insight on this historic debate, and the authors ought to be congratulated for their foresight."

Reilly (J.) TEACHING THE 'NATIVE', behind the architecture of an unequal education system
302pp., paperback, Cape Town , 2016. R290
"'Teaching the Native' provides an invaluable historical explanation for the controversies that currently bedevil South African education. Artfully written, with a keen eye for historical nuance and detail, Joseph Reilly takes us on an epic journey through the history of South African educational policy, demonstrating the global and transnational connections between the South African university and British imperialism and American racism. He deftly weaves a story of how education, far from being a neutral 'technocratic' solution to inequality, has actually played a key role in creating societies structured in dominance. His analysis, which demonstrates that the present dissatisfaction within the South African academy is a predictable outcome of its history, also provides a valuable blueprint for how to rebuild South African education in the 21st century." Zine Magubane, Associate Professor of Sociology, Boston College

Scholar and anti-apartheid activist Joseph Reilly is currently working on an archival project celebrating the scholarship and liberation heritage of Professor Ben Magubane through the Bernard Magubane Trust.

Soudien (C.) REALISING THE DREAM, unlearning the logic of race in the South African school
270 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2012. R395
Foreword by Jonathan Jansen.

Crain Soudien analyses how the ongoing pre-occupation with race continues to be played out in the lives of post-apartheid South African school students and how this prevents the evolution of new ways of understanding.

""A sterling example of scholarship out-of-bounds precisely because it is grounded in lived reality. Crain Soudien enables movement from proscribed to capacious possibilities for personhood, sociability and for knowledge (un)making and sharing. From this place of 'big mind' he writes not only against but through 'race', piercing its countless mutations en route to wide-open anti-racial reasoning. Steeped in history, Soudien's 'new critical sociology' walks with history into a possible future. 'Realising the Dream' will have prize place on the shelves of readers interested in difference as a catalyst for - not a hindrance to - becoming more human. This work is saturated with an ethic of care and quiet defiance. It is both seminal and beautiful." Zimitri Erasmus, Associate Professor of Sociology, University of the Witwatersrand

322pp., paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2015. R350
A collection of essays that examine some of the most pressing challenges facing higher education institutions in contemporary South Africa.

"This is arguably one of the three most important books on higher education transformation in South Africa to have emerged in the last decade. The richly textured stories might come from one institution, Rhodes University, but they are hung onto compelling theories of institutional culture and change, giving the book meaning and relevance to universities "at home" and abroad. A long-time sceptic of hastily edited books in South Africa's subsidy-obsessed universities, I have to admit that I gulped down this fascinating collection on one sitting. Highly recommended."
