About The Book

Following the end of apartheid in 1994 the ANC government placed education at the centre of its plans to build a nonracial and more equitable society. Yet by the 2010s a wave of student protests voiced demands for decolonised and affordable education. By following families and schools in Durban for nearly a decade Mark Hunter sheds new light on South Africas political transition and the global phenomenon of education marketisation. He rejects simple descriptions of the countrys move from race to class apartheid and reveals how white phenotypic traits like skin colour retain value in the schooling system even as the multiracial middle class embraces prestigious linguistic and embodied practices the book calls white tone. By illuminating the actions and choices of both white and black parents Hunter provides a unique view on race class and gender in a country emerging from a notorious system of institutionalised racism.
