Jaques Pretorius

  • University of Cape Town, PhD Education


Jaques is an Anglican Priest, with experience as a pupil, parent, chaplain and governor in contexts of elite church schooling in South Africa. The Anglican Church has been a particular kind of ‘non-state actor’ in this educational landscape, since the mid-nineteenth century. The new political economy of post-apartheid South Africa, evidences the need to discern the neo-liberal turn and the compromise of ‘care’ and the ‘common good’, in educational policy and practice. He is intrigued by what this might mean for policy and leadership in both church and public schooling.
