AbstractResting against a background of local and international movements in respect of human rights, South
African educators have had to implement a new curriculum, accept diversity and address inclusive
education with little or no training, insight and knowledge. Challenges at all levels in education,
impact on the successful education of children and the future of young adults who must as equal
members of society enter a fast changing global economy. Challenges for educators in South Africa
are unique. The lack of knowledge and training for educators and an inadequate infrastructure of the
country present as some of the challenges for educators. This qualitative study deals with the

challenges are addressed educators will be both, better supported and disposed, towards the
implementation of inclusive education idealised as the panacea for social transformation in South Africa.
