The late Richard Dudley was awarded an honorary doctorate in education. His involvement with the Teacher's League of South Africa during the apartheid years galled both the authorities and his immediate supervisors.
An alumnus of UCT, Dudley's teaching career at Livingstone High in Cape Town over 39 years is widely recognised as the foundation upon which hundreds of former pupils built success in a wide range of professional and academic fields. By providing an alternative to the curricula of the Coloured Affairs Department, Dudley and his colleagues went well beyond what was required by the syllabus.
