South Africa has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment and is renowned for being one of the most unequal societies in the world. In this context, training and education play critical roles in helping young people escape poverty and unemployment. Post-school Education offers insights about the way in which young people in South Africa navigate their way through a host of post-school training and education options. The topics range from access to, and labour market transitions from, vocational education, adult education, universities, and workplace-based training. The individual chapters offer up-to-date analyses, identify some of the challenges that young people face when accessing training and education and also point to gaps between education and the labour market. The contributors are all experts in their respective components but write with a holistic view of the post-school education system, using an unashamedly empirical lens. Post-school Education will be of interest to all researchers and policymakers concerned with the transformative role of further education and training in society.

Renewing Workers' Education focuses on educational forms created by workers for workers. It extends beyond trade unions to include the range of educational initiatives aimed at the working class more generally, including working class women, casual and informal sector workers, migrant workers, and workers' political parties. This book contributes to filling the gap in the South African literature on workers' education and documents the more recent history of workers' education as well as current practices and perspectives, including some international experiences. It explores conceptual tools that may assist in reflecting on and theorising the practice of workers' education and analyses current challenges. This essential book also seeks to inform future policy and practices on workers' education and is key for those who wish to reinvigorate and contribute to building an alternative future for workers' education.
Motivation for Learning is a book for teachers but not only for teachers: parents and administrators will also find it of value. Ultimately, too, it is a book for students for their independence and growth and against their boredom in the classroom. Stanford C. Ericksen writes out of years of experience, both as a teacher and as director of the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching at the University of Michigan. In a practical fashion, he brings together the significant applications from research and theory about learning, motivation, personality, and group dynamics. The book says more about the conditions for learning than about the techniques of teaching: projecting one's voice to the back of the room is judged to be less important than is the instructor's ability to make sense to young adults and to challenge their curiosity. Throughout, the primary focus is on the stimulation and encouragement of the individual student's motivation to acquire new knowledge and new attitudes and values. Only a person of Ericksen's special experience could have written such a book. Equally important, only a person who likes and respects students as much as he does could have given the book its special quality of human warmth and understanding.

The purpose of this subject is to empower learners to achieve their full physical, intellectual, personal, emotional and social potential.

Life Orientation for South African teachers provides educators with in-depth knowledge as well as teaching skills to deal with the wide variety of themes within the subject.

To date, academics, practitioners and students in South Africa interested in career psychology have had to rely largely on textbooks from the US and Europe. However, politics, economics and prevailing social conditions have had a major influence on the nature, form and direction of this field in South Africa, and while many of these are excellent references, they understandably focus on issues relevant to their own environment. Career psychology in the South African context examines historical and state-of-the-art career practices in career psychology, particularly in relation to conditions in this country. Career psychology in the South African context provides descriptive and critical analyses of career theories and current thought on career development, referring to many published articles both in South Africa and abroad. It gives a South African perspective on the process of career choice, and considers which aspects of overseas practice can be applied locally and which aspects require further research. Additional chapters in this edition include life design, unemployment and the influence of poverty on career choice. Career psychology in the South African context is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as career practitioners, psychologists, educationists and teacher-counsellors.
Rice University, one of America's preeminent institutions of higher education, grew out of the vision, direction, and leadership of one man: Edgar Odell Lovett (1871--1957). University Builder is the fascinating story of this extraordinary educator and the unique school he created. Widely acknowledged, almost from its founding in 1912, as one of America's best universities, Rice is distinguished as both the smallest and the youngest institution in the top tier of American universities. In telling the tale of Lovett and his innovative, enduring vision for Rice, John Boles provides both a compelling biographical narrative and a refreshing new view of American higher education in the first half of the twentieth century.
Lovett was not a Texan; he was not even a southerner. Rather, with two Ph.D.'s in hand, he was a rising star at Princeton University when the trustees of the newly founded Rice Institute--chartered in 1891 by wealthy Houston merchant William Marsh Rice--called him in 1907 to be the school's first president. Working with a significant endowment, a vague charter, a supportive board, and a visionary's gift for planning, Lovett set out on a fact-finding tour of educational institutions around the globe. He transformed the idea of the Institute into a complete university, one that emphasized research as much as teaching and aspired to world-class status. He sought the best architect available to design the campus, lured distinguished faculty from leading universities across the globe to Texas, and constructed a far-reaching vision of a small, carefully planned, elite university that incorporated the most advanced educational practices and shaped Rice's development for the next century.
Lovett served as president of Rice for nearly forty years, proving himself to be an exemplary and charismatic leader who inspired two generations of students. He was the creator of Rice University in practically every way. Indeed, perhaps no other American university has been so shaped by its founder's vision. Boles's exceptional account of Lovett's remarkable academic achievement is a vital contribution to the legacy of Rice University and an important addition to the historiography of education in the early twentieth-century South.

This book addresses the provisions for the Individual Educational Planning Committee in Public Law 94-142 (1975). This committee is a mechanism required for every child who by reason of a disability or intellectual deviation is to be placed in one or another type of educational program of a given school district and to develop each child's individual educational plan.
Written by William M. Cruickshank, one of the pioneers in special education, this collection of thirteen separate essays approaches significant problems in the field from philosophical, administrative, and semiautobiographical points of view, provoking discussion of some seemingly irreconcilable issues and providing some hard-hitting solutions. Mainstreaming and noncategorical education are particular concerns of Cruickshank, as are such separate issues as human sexuality for the disabled, self-contained classes for the mentally retarded and for gifted children, and the role of the disciplines in special education, as well as the fears, the guilt feelings, and the rejection of the handicapped by ""normal"" society. The book is filled with issues that should form the basis of much discussion and argument and, hopefully, solutions.
The American High School and the Talented Student is a book for parents and educators that deals with the major problem of our time: how any ordinary high school, large or small, can better educate its superior students. For it is this group, and this group alone, properly identified and trained, that can produce the original and unconventional thinkers needed today. Advanced Placement is a program based on individual differences, manageable even by a single teacher, and particularly suited to that peculiarly American institution the comprehensive high school. How can you set up an advanced placement program in your high school? How can it be fitted into the regular high-school program? At what grade level should it be offered? What subjects should you begin with? What tests should be used in selecting students? How should the teachers be chosen? What should be done about grades? What chance does the student have of getting college credit for the work he has successfully completed? What is the cost? Author Frank O. Copley, who served as high-school consultant for the Honors Council at the University of Michigan, draws upon extensive firsthand experience in the teaching field, including his own observation of schools that have had advanced placement in operation over the past five years. The result is a practical guide that enables parents, teachers, and principals to help guide today's academically talented youth to become the intellectual leaders of tomorrow.
