Southern African Review of Education

Published by the Southern African Comparative and History of Education Society (SACHES)

Southern African Review of Education (SARE) incorporating Education with Production (EWP) is a peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for critical discussion of education in the Southern Africa region from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, and for the dissemination of current research and reflections on education. It has a broad, cross-disciplinary audience of scholars, researchers, and practitioners in the field of education.

Mission and Vision 2023

The new editor-in-chief, Professor Ewelina Kinga Niemczyk, aims to build on the legacy of valuable work of previous editorships, retaining key features such as the focus on comparative education, education policy, sociology and history of education, commitment to diversity, critical theory, and efforts to raise the profile of the journal. Her aims, at the same time, extend to shaping the journal’s future direction by being more responsive to global challenges and changes and, along with the editorial team, infusing SARE with fresh conceptions and orientation towards sustainability. 

In an era marked by rapid and often unpredictable global changes driven by social, political, and environmental events, the new editorial team positions SARE as the international and interdisciplinary journal crucial to unpacking the dynamic global society and its complex educational systems. It is our intention to promote scholarship that informs about critical themes arising from societal developments and their associated movements—the issues as well as the opportunities. In keeping with relevance to the contributors and readership of SARE, our focus is on critical discussion of education in the Southern Africa region.
