Where to for Provincial Education?

South Africa’s 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 from Idasa 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 – Russell Wildeman, manager of Idasa’s Economic Governance Programme, and Rose Hemmer-Vitti, a researcher in its Right to Know, Right to Education Project – believe this question and the future role of provincial education departments need to be discussed, openly and publicly, without delay.
