An Overview of Education and Drama in South Africa
Elliott, Terri Anne
Research in Drama Education, v21 n1 p57-59 2016
South Africa labours under a bimodal education system in which inequality is deeply entrenched. Approximately 83% of schools are classed as being "dysfunctional" and many learners are not effectively equipped for meaningful futures. Learners who are able to attend the few functional schools are generally able to attain better jobs and provide for families--meaning that the wealthy continue to receive the best education. Social mobility is a dream very few can actually achieve. The introduction of the CAPS curriculum has made allowance for some Drama from Grade R to Grade 9; however, multiple problems can hinder its impact.
