This eighteenth publication in the series provides a visual overview of various facts on education in South Africa. Up to 1995, educational data were presented by racially segregated education departments; now data are presented by the newly structured nonracial departments. The unavailability of data on a racial basis means that educational progress made by different population groups could not be measured. Information is also lacking on teacher education and teacher supply and development in various provinces. In 1997, 12,001,813 students were enrolled in South Africa's schools, with nearly 25% in the Kwaulu-Natal Education Department. About one-third of these students were in grades 1 to 3, the "Foundation Phase." Other phases are "Intermediate" (grades 4 to 6), "Senior" (grades 7 to 9), and "Further Education and Training" (grades 10 to 12). Learner enrollment is given according to gender and grade and enrollment projections are given for each of the provinces. Information is also supplied for university enrollment and faculty by racial population, and data are presented on aspects of educational finance, including expenditures per student for each province. (Contains 17 graphs.) (SLD)
