Increasing Equity in Education in South Africa
The South African government has made significant efforts to overcome the legacy of apartheid education, committing itself to the dual goals of achieving high-quality education with more equitable access for all South Africans. Substantial investments have been made to achieve this vision, however, translating policies into improved school-level practice remains a major challenge. Since 1998, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has assisted the South African government to achieve these goals through the District Development Support Program (DDSP) and the Integrated Education Program (IEP), both implemented by RTI International. This report provides a brief description of the program's activities and results to date.
