A Society Divided: How unequal education quality limits social mobility in South Africa Synthesis report for the Programme to Support Pro-Poor Policy Development (PSPPD) A Society Divided: How unequal education quality limits social mobility in South Africa Synthesis report for the Programme to Support Pro-Poor Policy Development (PSPPD)

The central focus of this research project is the investigation of the role of education in promoting social mobility for the poor in the highly unequal South African economic landscape. The investigation is of particular relevance in a country where the rapid expansion of educational attainment since the 1970s has not produced the desired labour market outcomes for many South Africans, for the most part perpetuating patterns of poverty and inequality along the apartheid dimensions of race and geography.
