oa South African Journal of Cultural History - Die 1912-onderwyskrisis in die Oranje-Vrystaat
The first few years of provincial administration in the Orange Free State were characterised by serious disunity and differences between the Administration and the education corps. Especially 1912 can be singled out as the year in which the education dispute reached a climax. Offended by among other things. the so-called autocratic attitude of the provincial powers, members of the teaching profession gathered their forces in opposition to the Ramsbottom administration, which led to the largest public protest meeting of teachers up to that time. The Administrator made a courageous attempt to solve the problems and to defuse the situation.
