The National Education Policy Act is introduced. The Act outlines the principles of Christian National Education (CNE) in white schools. CNE adheres to the creeds of the Dutch Reformed Church and is fundamentalist and anti-evolutionist. A major promoter of CNE, Dr. Chris Coetzee, says on CNE says that there is no distinction between christianity and nationalism. Later on a poll reveals that the majority of Afrikaaners did not want CNE.
