Where to for Provincial Education?

Reviewing Provincial Education Budgets 2006 to 2012

Russell Wildeman, Rose Hemmer-Vitti

Publication Year: 2010

South Africaís provincial education departments have been reduced to provincial administrations, for reasons that include the powerful role national government plays in delivering education services. This book looks in detail at education spending and asks: Can we afford to maintain administrations that cannot possibly change the course of poor quality education and engineer a brighter future for our poor and deprived learners? The authors believe this question and the future role of provincial education departments need to be discussed, openly and publicly, without delay.
