This is the first publication in this series on education in South Africa that provides a picture of education in the new South Africa. For the first time in 1995, data were collected by nonracial education departments in each of the nine new provinces. In the past, data had been collected for 17 different, racially based departments. Data collection was complicated by the difficulties of reorganization but the data do provide a concise picture of formal school education in South Africa. Figures provide information on the following topics: (1) enrollment by province and population group; (2) enrollment by school phase and gender; (3) enrollment by population group in elementary and secondary education (2 graphs); (4) learners as a percentage of the population per province; (5) enrollment by gender and standard (grade) per province and nationwide (11 graphs); (6) passing rate and number of passes from Standard 10 per province; (7) teacher-student ratio per province and school phase; (8) number of students in Standard 10 and in tertiary institutions, 1993 and 1995; (9) university students according to gender; (10) college personnel by gender; (11) students at technikons (technical schools) by gender; (12) teachers at technikons by gender; (13) learner enrollment forecasts for provinces and the country to 2005 (10 graphs); and (14) learner enrollment forecasts for South Africa by population group to 2005. (Contains 14 figures.) (SLD)
