n Educare - Educational change : is it possible?




Educational change is always a serious matter. When educators and/or learners do not live up to the expectations of the change, the change is reconsidered. The most recent mammoth educational change in South Africa with the implementation of OBE in 1997 has failed to deliver expected results. The most recent recommendations towards an attempt to rescue the situation continue to indicate fundamental ignorance towards what paradigmatic educational change requires. This article will reveal what research suggests as the requirements for fundamental educational change. It will also discuss how these principles were implemented in an in-service workshop for educators, how it was responsible for the school with the best implementation of OBE in Gauteng since its inception, and how it maintained this reputation through a persistent longitudinal effect of eight years.
