The changing face of redress in South Africa (1990 - 2005)

Moja, Teboho; Hayward, Fred

The study focuses on fifteen years of redress policies designed to redress past inequalities in South African higher education, particularly as reflected in funding. Attempts to reverse past injustices included measures to address racial inequities for individuals with limited access to higher education at one level, and at another focused on institutional discrimination through unequal funding of institutions based on racial groupings they were designated to serve. This led to policies to provide institutional redress. Two periods are examined under two different Ministers of Education and provide information on different strategies, levels of commitment, and degree of success.
