dc.description.abstract Even though this thesis focused on African student protests, responses from the government, and educational dimensions, it has neither been easy nor possible to wade away from political waves; the two aspects being inextricably intertwined. Furthermore, the thesis touches on the aspect of alternative education which is seen by the Blacks as an answer to the State's refusal to implement desired changes in the education system. Other dimensions flowing from uprisings are also covered--positive aspects such as involvement of commerce and industry in education, as well as the negative aspects comprising the near collapse of order and discipline in schools in certain areas of the PWV, mainly the Soweto area. The ironies of the South African situation are also portrayed, that while Black pupils are overcrowded in run-down classrooms with some pupils having to forgo their right to education, "White" schools are either running half full or are emptying and closing at an alarmingly fast rate.
