South African higher education policy in focus

OECD. Reviews of National Policies for Education - South Africa. OECD, 2008. ISBN: 9-789-264-053-489. Pages 392.

This review provides an overview of regional issues and the history of education in South Africa and describes the development of education in the country over the past 15 years. It presents an analysis of the education system, identifying key directions for the reinforcement of the reforms in light of the challenges encountered by officials, communities, enterprises, educators, parents and students under very dynamic conditions. The review concludes with a comprehensive set of strategic recommendations concerning the structure of the system and its labour market relevance; access and equity; financing; governance and management; internationalisation; and research, development and innovation.

The publication is available in paperback or as a PDF e-book from the OECD book store.
