How successful has South Africa been in overcoming injustice in education and the larger social injustices that result from it? And how shall we judge � by assessing justice in outcomes or justice in procedures or both? In this article we propose criteria for judging accomplishments in social justice and evaluate some facets of South Africa�s progress towards achieving an ambitious agenda for social justice in and through education in the first decade of democracy. We conclude that social injustice persists despite an impressive suite of policies for a more just education system. We also argue that educational inclusion and political inclusion are interdependent and lie together at the core of social justice. Justice in procedures and the achievement of socially just outcomes are intricately related.
