This research was commissioned by the President's Education Initiative (PEI). The rationale for the project was that while South African Education has been studied extensively at the systemic and policy level, there was a dearth of knowledge about the details and texture of daily activity in schools and the classroom. There was thus a danger that policy development could occur without a firm grounding in empirical classroom and school-based research, thus running the risk of being removed from the lived experiences of educators and learners such that successful implementation can become problematic. This report was thus conceptualised as an exploration into the interface of policy and practice. More specifically, the purpose was to examine the practice of educators within their specified areas of responsibility in schools that were recognised as being effective. Teacher practices was to be compared with the emerging definitions of teachers' roles and competences in order to interrogate these in terms of their applicability.
