Mark Potts’ doctorate was awarded by Bath Spa University, in the UK, in 2012. In his thesis, Mark reports on a 10 year research project that was focused on developing pedagogy for citizenship education through the establishment of an international partnership. The partnership activities focused on Salisbury High School and Nqabakazulu School in the black township of Kwamashu in Durban, South Africa. Underpinning values emerged. These values have been articulated as social justice, equal opportunities and the African notion of Ubuntu, or humanity. The partnership between the schools has enabled the teaching of these values to become meaningful in both contexts.
