A School where I belong

Image result for A school where I belong : creating transformed and inclusive South African schools

Over the past few years, it has become clear that the path of transformation in schools since 1994 has not led South Africa's education system to where we had hoped it could be. Through tweets, posts and recent protests in schools, it has become apparent that in former whites-only state schools, and private schools, children of colour and those who are 'different' don't feel they belong. Following the astonishing success of How to Fix South Africa's Schools, the authors sat down with young people who attended former Model-C and private schools, as well as principals and teachers, to reflect on.
