dc.description.abstractThis study explored the perceptions of teachers on the implementation of the National policy on religion and education at schools. The challenge with the implementation of the national policy on religion and education was that some public schools continued to attach themselves to a religion. This led to learners and teachers from minority religions becoming victims of the dominant religions at schools. Some religions were then undermined and referred to as uncivilized and barbaric. The National policy on religion and education was adopted in 2006 to accommodate all religions equitably. This research was guided by the Narrative Policy Framework (NPF), which require that the narrative should have a structure of a setting were the plot is clear, together with characters (The valiant and the victims), then there must be the moral of the story on how the policy can be amended. This qualitative study employed the interpretive paradigm to narrate the experience of teachers on the implementations of the national policy on religion and education at schools. The research area was Sekhukhune east district in Limpopo. I used semi-structured interviews together with document analysis to generate data. Ten schoolteachers including principals participated. I used the structural analysis within the narrative analyses to analyse the data. The finding of the study is that the victimization of the minority religions is there at schools which leads to some learners being suspended or expelled.en_ZA
