Ashoka Fellow
South Africa
Fellow Since 1993
This description of Jonny Gevisser's work was prepared when Jonny Gevisser was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1993.
Jonny Gevisser (South Africa 1996) sociologist and educator, is pioneering the creation of regionally-based extra-curricular centres to complement existing formal educational institutions. These centres will provide active, creative outlets for black students. And, perhaps more importantly over the long term, they will create a subtle, new avenue for reforming state education.
