Geography Education in South Africa after a Decade of Democracy

Lesley Le Grange and Peter Beets

In 2004 South Africa celebrated ten years of democracy. The past decade has witnessed radical changes to South Africa’s socio-politico-geographical milieu. Included in these changes is the introduction of several new education policies. Foremost among these are new national curriculum frameworks for General Education and Training (GET) and Further Education and Training (FET). In the early stages of curriculum renewal, the position of geography in the new curriculum structures seemed somewhat precarious. However, developments in the last four years place geography in a more secure position in the post-apartheid education system. In this article we describe and reflect on these recent developments and provide the reader with a picture of the changing landscape of school geography in contemporary South Africa.
