The South African Education Sector: This report focuses on South Africa’s primary, secondary and tertiary education sectors, which continue to remain in a turmoil. Despite high levels of investment by the government, South African education lags behind comparable countries in literacy and numeracy. By the end of Grade 4, 58% of children cannot read fluently and with comprehension and more than half the children who start in Grade 1 do not reach Grade 12. In the higher education sector, 50-60% of South African students drop out after the first year and only a minority of students complete a three-year degree in the allotted time.

The Growing Independent Sector: The failure of public education continued to provide growth for the independent school and tertiary sector, which has expanded rapidly. Major players include Curro Holdings, South Africa’s largest private education company in the primary and secondary sector, operating 148 schools across 60 campuses and ADvTECH, which had 89 schools as of 31 December 2017. This sector includes an increasing number of low fee-paying institutions.

Report Coverage: The Education report is a comprehensive report of the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors, which were previously researched separately. It examines current conditions and focuses on academic standards and initiatives to improve these standards. The report profiles 51 school groups, universities and other educational institutions.

It includes information on numbers of teachers and learners in the country, and reports on significant events which have influenced the sector including the effects of government’s announcement of free tertiary education and disruption caused by student protests.
