Contributing to Nation Building: Reflections on Teaching at a Muslim Faith-Based School in South Africa
AbstractThis article is a personal reflection and a self-study of my experience as an educator at a Muslim faith-based school. After teaching at this school for over two decades, I share my reflections on how a faith-based school contributes to the democratisation of society and contributes to nation building. This article provides a perspective from an educator’s position using self-reflexivity and documentary evidence as research methodology. My conclusion supports the notion that a faith-based educational institution can contribute positively towards the realisation of a greater good to all and promotes a cohesiveness that is much needed in an ideal democratic society.
