Willingness to take PhD students
Tom Bisschoff has had a longstanding research interest in the influence of a schooling system on the economy of a country. This formed the subject of his doctoral thesis and was further researched, explored and reported on in eight co-authored books, three chapter contributions to academic books and 31 peer-reviewed journal articles.
He is a South Africa National Research Foundation (NRF) rated researcher and has been granted an Incentive Funding Grant from the NRF for a five-year project on failing schools in South Africa. The research will explore the possibility of using an Academy school model to address the ever-growing number of dysfunctional schools in the South African system.
Dr Bisschoff supervises doctoral researchers in all his areas of interest.
