The aim of this research is to determine whether the national consciousness is a determinant of the educational systems of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and of the Whites in die Republic of South Africa. By making use of the Bereday method results are put alongside each other and compared so as to determine similarities and differences. By studying the literature and arguing national consciousness was found to be the available facts the a determinant of the relative educational systems. The way in which each community expresses its national consciousness in time and space determines the way in which it is reflected in the educational systems. In the Republic of China the core of national consciousness is to be found in the 'Three principles of the people' and with the Whites of the Republic of South Africa it is Christian nationalism. The educational system of the Republic of China is therefor determined by the 'Three principles of the people' and that of the Whites of the Republic of South Africa by Christian nationalism. Research shows that both the national consciousness and the educational system are subject to the dynamics of change. The contemporary world has changing views on the being and substance of national consciousness. In both the Republic of China and the Republic of South Africa there are signs of this. Ongoing research should indicate how this will effect the different educational systems.
