Recently, world attention has been drawn to the continuing political struggle in southern Africa. Here, Kevin Danaher assesses the current relationship between the United States and South Africa. He argues that the Reagan administration has attempted to justify its friendly relations with the white minority government of South Africa by claiming that apartheid is being reformed and that U.S. educational assistance is playing an important role in that process. Danaher examines educational inequality in South Africa and the contradictions of recent reforms. Offering a critique of the Reagan administration's "constructive engagement"policy and its effects on the lives of black people in South Africa, he concludes that US. policies reinforce rather than undermine the strategies of the white minority government of Pretoria.
