Our research was conducted in the Western Cape and focused on understanding the underlying factors responsible for the poor performance of learners, which is manifested in grade repetition or failure in underperforming secondary schools. It found that most underperforming schools were located in the townships and manifest many social dysfunctionalities emanating from the social environment in which they are rooted. The resultant inequity in educational outcomes is morally, politically and economically intolerable and this paper highlights the need to have these issues addressed as a matter of urgency.

This paper highlights the need for policies and programmes that take children into account, even when their content is not obviously or exclusively child-focused. To support this we need reliable and accessible child-centred information which can be used to inform the design and targeting of policies, programmes and interventions, and as a tool for tracking progress for children. Section 2 of the paper outlines some of the reasons why child-focused statistics are an important counterpart to national population statistics. Section 3 provides a brief overview of the main datasets, indicators and methods used. Section 4 is organised into thematic sections, and presents some of trends for children, focusing on demographic distributions, living environments and income poverty.

pdf.png Recent patterns in the extent and quality of pre-primary education in South Africa (2) 2010

(0 votes)

A recent paper, using new household data, indicates that the percentage of Grade 1 learners who have experienced pre-primary schooling increased substantially between 2004 and 2008, from 60% to 80%. Evidence is also found that for certain poor learners having participated in pre-primary schooling improves performance in primary school mathematics tests.
This policy brief is largely based on findings from a 2010 paper titled Policy note on pre-primary  schooling: An empirical contribution to the 2009 Medium Term Strategic Framework by Martin Gustafsson.
