dc.description.abstract The sad inutility of this political diatribe, which is based on an unrealistic ideological utopian expectation, is exemplified by the following statement by the author: "The thrust of this study will be to demonstrate that the current upheaval in education, increasingly community-based and, therefore, political or ideological in nature, will not be redressed within the present socio-political (and economic?) milieu, by the provision of manpower, buildings, facilities, amenities and equipment." The thesis itself is divided into three sections. "Section A attempts to define the current situation and has as its overriding aim the identification and characterisation of the core of what people reject... Chapters are devoted, therefore, to the Social Milieu, the Educational Milieu and to Gutter Education as experienced by the participants in the present upheaval. Section B seeks to demarcate the schism and to plumb the depths separating the State and the People... Chapters are consequently assigned to Rallies and Marches, the Consumer Boycott and the bench-mark examinations boycott, all illustrating the critical role of collective behaviour. Secondly, a close examination is made of the State's responses to such manifestations of opposition and challenge...[This is] recorded in chapters devoted to the unprecedented Schools Closure episode, the State of Emergency and other restrictive banning orders, and to actions taken by the South African Police in conjunction with the Defence Force... Section C," he claims, "assesses the prospects for a re-defined situation and seeks to establish the range of alternative educational models [considered appropriate]". en
