dc.description.abstract The existence of governing bodies in public schools can be traced back to the 1950's; when the apartheid regime was established. They (governing bodies) were introduced as a way of steering Africans in the development of their own communities. These governing bodies also had responsibilities rather than authority. Their powers were limited in such a way that individual members were held "personally responsible for disapproved actions to which they may have voted, such as employing and paying a teacher or expending funds before the Secretary's approval has been obtained" (Jefferson, 1973: 157). This is to say that governing bodies are not new to the history of South African schools. The newly established governing bodies are not totally different to the ones described above, in that, the newly established governing bodies also have responsibilities rather than authority. For example, the governing body may not be allowed to pay for services to the school without the approval of the HOD (Potgieter, Visser, Van der Bank, Mothata & Squelch, 1997: 32). The purpose of this research project is to try and find the criteria which are being used to elect members of the governing body in public schools for each of the elected categories except non-educators. The researcher decided to omit non-educators in this research because not all school governing bodies have non-educators as members. en_US
