Report on the Supply of Secondary Level Teachers in English-Speaking Africa. Secondary Level Teachers: Supply and Demand in Lesotho. Country Study No. 4.
Hanson, John W.; Bam, V. M.
The report examines the economic and social conditions in Lesotho and the ways in which the country's poverty and economic dependence on South Africa limit its ability to support further educational development. In-depth discussions follow on 1) the prospective growth of secondary school enrollment, which is limited by the restrictions on the government's ability to control educational expansion; 2) the supply and status of secondary school teachers, the unattractiveness of the profession, and the wide use of volunteers; 3) staffing of other secondary level institutions, including those for agricultural education, artisan and trade training, and teacher training; and 4) staffing needs of secondary institutions, including the need for assistance from outside agencies. A field survey report analyzes the supply and utilization of secondary level teachers and examines the role of the University of Botswana, Lesotho, and Swaziland. The eight appendixes are 1) "Lesotho Educational System"; 2) "Academic, Vocational, and Teaching Qualifications"; 3) "Primary School Enrolment by Grade and Standard"; 4) "Secondary School Enrolment by Form"; 5) "Number of Schools, Enrolment, Teachers and Student/Teacher Ratio"; 6) "Projected Secondary School Enrolment, Revised Development Plan"; 7) "Wastage in Secondary Schools"; and 8) "Tentative Projections of the Economic Planning Unit."
