Abstract

In the preamble to the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (Act 108 of 1996) it is clearly stated that the aim of the constitution is, inter alia, to make it possible for each citizen to realize his or her potential and to ensure a better quality of life for all. In spite of the democratic process that is sweeping through the country, South Africa is still struggling with major problems such as crime, unemployment and poverty. Against this background, society has high expectations from education in terms of economic growth, social development and the development of human potential. This research was an effort to address the problem of the development of human potential in South Africa.
