This is the second publication in the series that provides information about education in the new South Africa. Educational data were collected by the new nonracial education departments in each of the nine provinces. Because of the difficulties of gathering information on the new systems, no evaluation of the educational progress made by disadvantaged groups is possible. A new Education Management Information System being developed will improve the gathering of information for subsequent volumes. A series of figures presents information about South Africa's 8,138,591 primary and 3,910,346 secondary students and their schools and teachers. The following figures are included: (1) "Learner Enrollment According to Province and School Phase, 1996"; (2) "Learner Enrollment According to School Phase and Gender, 1996"; (3) a 10-part figure of learner enrollment by region and for the whole country; (4) "Number of Educators and Learner Enrollment per Province, 1996"; (5) "Number of Schools and Learner Enrollment per Province, 1996"; (6) "Matric Results According to Province, 1994-1996"; (7) "Results for History, Mathematics and Physical Science in the Matriculation Examination, 1996"; (8) "Results for English and Biology in the Matriculation Examination, 1996"; (9) "Comparison between the Population and Learner Enrollment per Province, 1996"; (10) a 10-part figure with enrollment forecasts for each province and the whole country from 1997 to 2005; (11) "Students at Universities According to Population Group, 1996"; (12) "Number of Staff Members at Universities According to Population Group, 1996"; (13) "Students at Technikons According to Population Group, 1996"; and (14) "Number of Staff Members at Technikons According to Population Group, 1996." An appendix lists addresses of universities and university and teacher training college contact persons. (SLD)
