Blue buffaloes and battered soccer cards

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Sue Ollerhead uses some delightful examples to draw parallels between literacy programs in Australia and South Africa. She questions reporting and administrative requirements that take time from more important aspects of teaching such as training and professional development, often leaving teachers to rely on a deficit model. The author concludes that the way forward is to recognise the centrality of the social uses of literacy.
