Since the founding of the Government of National Unity in 1994, educational reforms and curriculum transformation have been a top concern in South Africa. Education is crucial in redressing apartheid colonialism's injustices, which resulted in an inequitable and fragmented educational system. School access, governance, curriculum, teacher deployment, and financial resources are just a few of the issues that have gone through the education policy mill. While there has been some progress in legislative interventions, policy development, curriculum reform, and the adoption of innovative means of delivering education, there are still numerous obstacles to overcome (Blom, 2021). Twenty-two years after the start of democracy, one of the most pressing concerns is the quality of education. The paper discusses the various curriculum reforms in South Africa's education sector. It provides a brief evaluation of the trends in policies affecting equity and quality in the South African education environment to contribute to the debate on educational reforms and education quality.
