pdf.png Recent patterns in the extent and quality of pre-primary education in South Africa (3) 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.

pdf.png Inequities in under-five child nutritional status in South Africa What progress has been made? HOT

The 2008 National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS) data is used to assess and quantify the magnitude of inequalities in under-five child malnutrition ascribable to economic status. We compare these results to those of Zere and McIntyre (2003) who use similar data collected in 1993. In both cases, household income, proxied by per capita household expenditure, was used as the indicator of socio-economic status. I find that stunting is still the most prevalent form of malnutrition in South Africa and the rate of stunting is continues to be the highest in the provinces in which there is the highest concentration of income poverty, the Eastern Cape and the Northern Province.

The Child Poverty roundtable was organized by the Children’s Institute (CI) on behalf of the Programme to Support Pro‐Poor Policy Development (PSPPD) in the Presidency. The roundtable is part of an ongoing conversation between policy makers and researchers participating in the PSPPD, and it also provides the CI with an opportunity to start framing the next issue of the South African Child Gauge which will focus on child poverty and inequality.
