12 260 099 learners (2010)

Very high access...

...until senior high school

(substantial drop-out from grade 11 to 12)


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

Three questions

How does the quality of our education compare to other countries?

Is the quality of SA education equal

for all learners?

What are the effects of socio-economic status and resources?


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

How does the quality of our education compare to other countries?

Last of 46 countries in maths & science test

Last of 40 countries in reading test


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

Below the average

of neighbouring countries


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

despite

“better access to resources,

more qualified teachers

and lower pupil-to-teacher ratios”


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

and we do worse

except in the richest areas


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

Is the quality of SA education equal

for all learners?

Absolutely not.

It is a lot more unequal

than in all neighbouring countries.


It is unequal across provinces

It is unequal across provinces:


And according to language at school vs home

And according to language at school vs home:


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

This inequality is extreme. In 2004,

the top 7% of schools produced 66% of the matric HG maths passes.The bottom 79% of schools produced 15% of the passes.


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

Only 34 of the high-performing schools were former (apartheid) “black African” schools.

But 4277 of the low-performing schools were former “black African” schools.


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

We all have the same right to basic education.Legally, we have one education system.Effectively, though, we have two education systems in our country...


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

What is the effect of socio-economic status (SES)?

Overall, socio-economic status (class)

has the same effect is has overseas.

Better-off learners who go to schools with richer peers, do better.


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

But, in SA, excluding quintile five schools,

differences in SES aren’t strongly tied to

differences in learner achievement.

It seems a lot of schools in our country

lack the basic level of systems

to efficiently turn inputs into learning.


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

Evidence indicates that“[financial and human] resources matter,

conditionally”

Every school must have adequate financial resources.But most of our schools should do more with the resources they have.


12 260 099 learners 2010 very high access until senior high school

We must and we can help our schools

to do better.We should connect our schools to our communities – to ourselves and our organisations. These are also resources!

Organised hard work over time can build the support and accountability systems we need in our schools.

Then the equitable financial and human resources we deserve will matter more.
