The issue of class, with its dimension of inequality, did not feature as prominently. However, in post, inequality now features other categories of peopleFile Size: KB. In South Africa however, addressing inequality from a purely economic standpoint fails to fully explain the complexities of poverty and inequality. “[It shows] how central racism, through racial classification and racial exploitation, is for producing the conditions of poverty and inequality.”.

      "This is a landmark book on basic education in South Africa, an essential volume for those interested in learning outcomes and their inequality in South Africa. The various chapters present conceptually and empirically sophisticated analyses of learning outcomes across divisions of race, class, and place.   South Africa continues a system of socioeconomic exclusion. However, whereas historically the exclusionary practices were racially-based, today the extent and depth of inequality in South Africa is increasingly intersectional. Although it continues to impact black South Africans the most, it strikes at race, gender, class and age.
