Implementation of the South African National Curriculum: The educators’ perspectives
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2009 Conference, August 2009, Ghana. The purpose of this study was to determine the attitude held by educators in the implementation process of the South African national curriculum; Outcomes- Based Education system (OBE), since inception until present day. From the inquiry by The Department of Education (DoE), it was shown that educators are still struggling to implement the new curriculum. In order to get the views of the educators which are of great importance, a survey was conducted. This was achieved by administering a questionnaire to a random sample of schools to 60 educators. Of this number 11 are male and 49 are female.
