About this publication

Since 1994, a stream of national and provincial education laws and policies has altered the landscape of South African schooling dramatically – replacing the discriminatory and fragmented legal framework under apartheid with a uniform system aimed at making the constitutional right to education a reality for the people of South Africa.   Schools and the Law describes and explains the current legal framework governing our schools. It addresses the key legal and policy instruments affecting schools and covers the growing body of case law on schools and education.  The book includes the text of the core laws and policy instruments governing school education.
