Summary This study traces the efforts to set up an integrated Eastern Cape Department of Education (ECDoE) and the ebbs and flows in trying to implement national policy in that unique environment. It seeks to understand the successes and failures in that regard, including those of national interventions introduced to assume direct responsibility for running the provincial department. A number of factors requiring focused attention emerge, including educational infrastructure; shifting management and administration from school to district and provincial levels; financial resources; teacher quality and development; the contradictory roles of culture, and the impact of a particular brand of teacher unionism
