‘Mark Hunter has produced the definitive text on the sociology of urban education in South Africa … the book offers a novel account of how post-apartheid educational reforms have not led to the ‘de-whitening’ of the grammar of privilege
… [and] to understandings of schooling and youth identity in globalised cities.’
Aslam Fataar – University of Stellenbosch and former President of the South African Education Research Association.
The book will be on sale at the launch for R150.00
