Surviving the system: a critical appraisal of some conventional wisdoms in primary education in South Africa

Surviving the system: a critical appraisal of some conventional wisdoms in primary education in South Africa

Comparative Education 31(2): 161-179

Official estimates show that 1.6 million African children between the ages of 6 and 13 were not at school in South Africa in 1992, and that only 51%-62% of African enrolments in the first year of primary schooling will reach Standard 6 in 12 years, in contrast with 96% of white pupils in 8 years. If free and compulsory schooling is to be made a reality by the new South African government, then this issue must be addressed.
