A lively, humorous and riveting account of the history of schools for English-speaking South Africans. Mark Henning gives insight into a remarkably rich part of the education vineyard with storied histories and prognoses into thier future course. The schools need closer appreciation for their greatcontribution to South Africa culture, economy and democracy, but also for thier troubled origins. There will be a new appreciation for the hardiness of these institutions over centuries. Outstanding.
