Secondary Education for San Students in Botswana: A New Xade Case Study
Sekere, Bihela
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, v5 n2 p76-87 2011
Much research in Botswana has shown that, although other ethnic groups have benefited from the state-funded education systems since independence in 1966, San children have been "left behind." This case study is based on an investigation of the root causes of secondary school dropout among Rural Area Development Program students in New Xade, a new settlement established by the government after relocating the San (Basarwa) out of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. This study also looks at individual cases of some dropouts and examines their reasons for leaving school. (Contains 1 footnote.)
