This is the 19th publication in a series that provides an overview of various aspects of education in South Africa. No publication was produced in 1999 because official data were not yet ready, so this document contains some 1998 information along with that for 1999. Obtaining data on a racial basis remains a problem, and it is recognized that the reaching of important goals of the national educational policy with respect to equity, redress, and access can only be achieved if educational data can be disaggregated in terms of racial groupings. In this report indicators other than matric results (matriculation examination) are presented for the first time with the report of South African results for two international studies. In 1999, the 2,772,225 students of the KwaZulu-Natal education department represented 22.5% of the country's total students. In contrast, only 1.7% (204,238) students were enrolled in the Northern Cape region. Data are supplied in graph and table form for the following provinces: (1) Western Cape; (2) Eastern Cape; (3) Free State; (4) Gauteng; (5) KwaZulu-Natal; (6) Mpumalanga; (7) Northern Cape; (8) Northern Province; and (9) North West. Data include the number of teachers and their qualifications, student enrollment for each province by grade and gender, matric test results by subject and province, university and technical school enrollment, and achievement data in numeracy and literacy. (Contains 14 figures.) (SLD)
