Approaching Ubuntu in Education Through Bottom-Up Decolonisation
MetadataShow full item record
In our paper we contrast the idea(l) of an education that aims at community and planetary wellbeing with the current educational reality in South Africa. Drawing on our initiatives to integrate local indigenous knowledges (including use of home language) with the Western curriculum we address the question how to approach educational transformation despite and within the given educational context. We do this through telling our narrative stories as well as reflections on our research projects geared towards bottom-up decolonisation. We offer this paper as an invitation to researchers worldwide to engage in scholarly debate on decolonisation.
