pdf.png Increasing the supply of teacher graduates (2) 2015

(0 votes)

The findings in this policy brief are based on a working paper in which I analysed initial teacher training enrolment and graduation data from the 2004–2013 HEMIS (Higher Education Management Information System) database. HEMIS records data on all students at South African public universities, including initial teacher education training programme enrolments and graduations.

pdf.png Improving the calibre of school leadership in South Africa (2) 2015

(0 votes)

This policy brief summarises evidence from two quantitative studies by the author on the labour market for school principals in South Africa.1 In this brief I describe four features of this market: aging and retirement, long tenure, unequal distribution in terms of qualifications and experience, and unreliable indicators of quality. I explain how an understanding of these features can inform and support policy for school principals.

pdf.png Education datasets in South Africa (2) 2015

(0 votes)

The working paper on which this policy brief is based reviews education datasets available in South Africa, mostly from the Department of Basic Education (DBE). The working paper serves as an inventory for anyone wanting to know what data are available in South Africa, how the data may be accessed, what the quality is like and in what formats the data may be accessed.1 This brief describes these datasets and the data elements of each, explains the need for data integration as a data management strategy, and offers recommendations for improving the quality and accessibility of datasets for both researchers and policymakers.
