INTRODUCTION/ PROBLEM STATEMENT In 1994 there was a need to develop policies and practice in teacher development, school leadership and teaching standards with a focus on: o Introducing equity and redress in the allocation of teacher posts to schools; o Building a strong collective bargaining culture; and o School and educator evaluation systems. Before 1994, teacher training in public institutions was generally goverment funded, from 1995 to 2005 bursaries were abandoned for teacher training resulting in financial barrier In 2002, the 110 teacher colleges merged into the 22 higher education institutions and tuition fees were increased, creating a further barrier. Result was fewer previously disadvantaged African teacher students due to unaffordability of teacher training. Unintended consequence of the college dissolution was that rural areas were no longer receiving teachers. 27 AVERAGE AGE OF EDUCATORS 2004 - 2017 28 KEY POLICY DEVELOPMENTS/ACHIEVEMENTS

Redistribution of available resources o educator rationalization - from areas of oversupply to areas of need o voluntary severance package to those not willing to be part of rationalization. Establishment of Education Labour Relations Council in 1994. o Negotiated post-Apartheid pay equalization for African teachers o Mid-1990s, 25% salary increase for most teachers African teachers with four years of post-secondary education Post Provisioning Norms evolved from focus on equality of inputs and poverty ranking to weighted learners ensuring fairness in the distribution of teacher posts 29 NUMBER OF EDUCATORS 1987 - 2007 30 KEY POLICY DEVELOPMENTS/ ACHIEVEMENTS

New and strengthened Integrated Strategic Planning Framework for Teacher Education and Development in South Africa, 20112025 Equitable distribution of educators by maintaining reasonable learner to educator (LER) ratios within the context of financial constraints Introduction of the Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme to attract greater numbers of students into initial teacher education FLBP awarded 120 511 bursaries from 2007 to 2017 at a cost of R7.21 billion. FLBP students constituting on average 15% of the total ITE student intake 31 ENTRY OF YOUNG TEACHERS

reflect this as an area of improvement Professional Development: increases in some provinces but teacher on average spent 40 hours on professional development, half the specified target of 80 hours Filling of posts: improvement from 69% to 78% in 2017 still below the target of 95% in the MTSF 2014-19 Teacher absenteeism: Remained at 10% on average per day between 2011 2017 FLBP: Greater efforts needed for placement in rural areas and poor schools Sectoral response to free higher education in context of ITE 35 OUTPUT 2: RESOURCES Infrastructure and Learning and Teaching Support Material (LTSM) 36 INTRODUCTION/ PROBLEM STATEMENT Development of children is influenced by the physical and social environments they find themselves in NDP and Action Plan refer to this o Goal 24 is about the provision of adequate physical infrastructure and environments in every school

School Register of Needs 1996 provided a baseline database on the provision of school infrastructure and basic services in all schools o o o o 26,734 ordinary schools with an average learner classroom ratio of 43:1. 55% of learners (6.6 million) were in schools without toilet facilities Learner toilet ratio was 41:1 42 % of schools had access to electricity; 40% had access to telephones o Out of the 270 ELSEN schools surveyed, 20% of the schools were in good or excellent condition and only 33% had wheelchair ramps 37 INTRODUCTION/ PROBLEM STATEMENT In 1996 School Register of Needs o Textbook provisioning varied highest in Free State, 63%, and the lowest in Eastern

Cape,38%, and North West,39%. o 60% of schools in 6 PEDs without any materials. Worst at 78% in KwaZulu-Natal Goal 19 and Goal 20: minimum textbooks and workbooks and access to computers and other media (LTSM) Legal mandate in South African Humans Rights Council (SAHRC) charter of basic education rights, Ensures the provision of teaching and learning support materials and equipment. o Provide LTSM and equipment such as stationery and textbooks in a timely fashion to all learners, including appropriate materials for learners with disabilities. o Responsibility for delivering lies with the national and provincial departments 38 JOURNEY SINCE 1994 Introduction of 2 infrastructure programmes: o The Provincial Schools Building Programme through the Education Infrastructure Grant (EIG) o The DBE led Accelerated School infrastructure Delivery Initiative (ASIDI) through the Schools Infrastructure Backlogs Grant Introduction of 2006 National Education Infrastructure Management System (NEIMS),

an electronic planning and management tool 2008 Foundations for Learning Campaign, gazetted by the then DoE, Every teacher must have sufficient resources to ensure the effective teaching and learning of Literacy and Numeracy o Specific resources listed. e.g. wall charts, number and phonic friezes, textbooks, reading series, workbooks and writing materials. o Specified minimum resources for Grade 1 to 6, Literacy/Language and Numeracy/Mathematics. o Minimums were then extended to other grades. 39 KEY POLICY DEVELOPMENTS/ ACHIEVEMENTS Standardisation of architectural designs, focusing on maintenance and ensuring dedicated capacity for the management of infrastructure through 2 policies: 2008 National Policy for an Equitable Provision of an Enabling School Physical Teaching and Learning Environment. Promulgation of Minimum Uniform Norms and Standards for Public School Infrastructure 2013, published legally binding Norms and Standards for School Infrastructure, known as the Regulations Relating to Minimum Uniform Norms and Standards for Public School infrastructure. o Resulted from civil society pressure and engagement 40

KEY POLICY DEVELOPMENTS / ACHIEVEMENTS 989 new and replacement schools built since the inception of ASIDI Further 784 new and replacement schools through the PEDs Schools with electricity increased from 11,174 in 1996 to 99.1% of all schools in 2018 Schools without water decreased from 8,823 in 1996 to all schools having some form of access to water Schools without sanitation decreased from 3,265 in 1996 to 99 % of all schools having some form of sanitation in 2018 41

KEY POLICY DEVELOPMENTS / ACHIEVEMENTS Introduction of the revised NCS with CAPS in 2011, with the national catalogue for Grades 1-3 and 10; Grades 4-6 and 11, in 2012 and, lastly, Grades 7-9 and 12, in 2013. Introduction of national catalogue of textbooks and LTSMs 2011 DBE developed and delivery of workbooks for Grade 1 to 9 and Siyavula textbooks for Grade 10 to 12 in Mathematics and Physical Science. Independently evaluated with positive outcomes Economies of scale from central procurement.

Province 2011 NC NW WC SA Source: School Monitoring Survey, 2017 2017 45 46 CHALLENGES/OPPORTUNITIES 2012 poor delivery of LTSM especially in Limpopo. Verified by Presidential Task Team. Findings: o Poor communication and coordination between different stakeholders including schools, PEDs and DBE o A lack of comprehensive monitoring and recording of LTSM provisioning and the lack of capacity to manage national procurement and provisioning.

Subsequent developments and policies that have supported LTSMs were developed or strengthened following the 2012/13 challenges. Graded readers in African languages need detailed work and standards for provisioning 47 CHALLENGES/OPPORTUNITIES Extensive civil society pressure and court cases before introduction of Infrastructure Norms Strengthening the Infrastructure norms in response to 2017/18 court cases. o Implementation plans received from PEDs should be made public Sanitation audit showed there is still a challenge with unsafe pit toilets Need to build new facilities Need to destroy old unsafe facilities Poor maintenance of school infrastructure contributing to the early deterioration of new school infrastructure, especially sanitation

96.3% 79.9% Source: School Monitoring Survey, 2017 49 OUTPUT 3 : ASSESSMENT 50 INTRODUCTION/ PROBLEM STATEMENT 1994, racially differentiated education system with 19 different departments of education, each maintaining different standards and administering its own examinations. Only systemic assessment instrument in the pre-Apartheid system was the Grade 12 (matriculation) examination with inconsistent quality and little emphasis on school-based formative assessments Grade 12 exam and was administered in different forms in the various departments using a fragmented curriculum framework. Measuring progress in learning outcomes is, essential for monitoring development at a country-level. It provides the rationale for strengthening measurement through assessment

51 JOURNEY SINCE 1994 A single national Department of Education was tasked with establishing a single national examination system - with common content and common standards for examinations, administration, moderation, analysis, and certification. From 1994, the provincial administration of the Grade 12 summative assessment was effected as a feature of the education system Extensive discussion of Assessments in Action Plan and NDP. Assessment data availability underpins several Action Plan Goals 52 KEY POLICY DEVELOPMENTS / ACHIEVEMENTS Standard of the NSC has improved. DBE benchmarked the NSC question papers and qualifications against international institutions. Consensus among these institutions that the questions are well designed by international standards and assess what they purport to assess. o 2007, 10 NSC subjects were benchmarked against those of the Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA), Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and the Board of Studies in New South Wales (BSNSW) Australia.

o 2011, 7 subjects were benchmarked with the SQA, CIE, BSNSW and Higher Education South Africa (HESA) o 2016, 10 NSC subjects were benchmarked with Universities South Africa (USAF) o 2017, 6 subjects were benchmarked with CIE. 53 THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS OBTAINING THE MATRIC, 1994 2016 54 KEY POLICY DEVELOPMENTS / ACHIEVEMENTS

Matric passes increased by 50% between 1994 -2017 Bachelors-level passes grew by around 100%. An increase in the number of learners reaching critical performance thresholds, such as marks of 50, 60 and 70 percent in Maths and Science Increase in the number of black learners obtaining a mark of 60 in mathematics increased by as much as 65%, 55 KEY POLICY DEVELOPMENTS / ACHIEVEMENTS Participate in 3 regional/ international assessments Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in Grade 8 mathematics and science conducted in 1995 and 1999, Grade 8 and 9 in 2002, and Grade 9 2011 and 2015 Participated in TIMSS Numeracy in Grade 5 in 2015;

Southern and Eastern African Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality (SACMEQ) for Grade 6 reading and mathematics conducted in 2000, 2007 and 2013; Progress in International Reading and Literacy Study (PIRLS) in Grade 5 in 2006, 2011, and included Grade 4 in 2011 and 2016 in 56 KEY POLICY DEVELOPMENTS / ACHIEVEMENTS Introduction of systemic evaluations on a 5-year cycle on random samples of public schools at either Grade 3, 6 or 9. Introduction of the Universal and Verification ANAs from 2011 2015 especially in primary schools Grade 1-6 and Grade 9 Initial introduction of the National Assessment Integrated Framework with 3 distinct tiers: o Systemic Assessment, sample-based, and administered in Grades 3, 6 and 9, once every three years

o Diagnostic Assessment, administered by teachers in the classroom for learning o Summative Assessment, as a national examination, administered in selected grades and subjects. It will also be used for promotion/progression purposes. 57 CHALLENGES/OPPORTUNITIES Need for a streamlined and coordinated system of assessments that teachers implement Reduce the administrative burden Fulfils key objectives for formative and diagnostic assessment Measurement of learning in a system oriented around learning as the core business The ANA experience A new redesigned Systemic Evaluation In time (2021?) this may include a universal assessment in at least one grade, though it is not certain whether it will happen in a primary school grade (to encourage mutual accountability between schools and communities as envisaged in the NDP); 58 OUTPUT 4: IMPROVED GRADE R AND PLANNING FOR EXTENSION OF ECD

59 OUTPUT 4: PROBLEM STATEMENT The early years of a childs life are critical for the acquisition of concepts, skills and attitudes that lay the foundation for lifelong learning. SDG Target 4.2: Ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education. 60 ECD: JOURNEY SINCE 1994 The 1995 White Paper on Education and Training prioritised the development of a strategic plan for inter-sectoral collaboration; National Early Learning Development Standards (NELDS), 2009 National Curriculum Framework (NCF) for children from Birth to Four, 2015 National Integrated Policy for Early Childhood

Development, 2015 61 ECD: ACHIEVEMENTS Expansion of the Grade R programme 241 525 enrolments in 2001 to 839 515 in 2017 Nearly 95% of children entering Grade 1 have attended Grade R Education participation amongst young children has increased substantially E.g. 40% of 5 year-olds in 2002 increased to nearly 90% in 2017 62 CHALLENGES: QUALITY OF SERVICE PROVISION Grade R impact evaluation (2013) On average, the effect found was equivalent to only 6% of a year of learning in mathematics and 25% for home language Effects concentrated in stronger provinces and wealthier schools An extra year of schooling at a weakly functioning schools adds little benefit

District-level support A high proportion of principals feel satisfied with district support (84%) But the frequency of curriculum-related visits is low, especially in the FP Substantial across-district inequalities in expenditure, especially in EC (some districts are less successful than others in the filling of posts) PEDs AG reports indicate financial mismanagement in several PEDs Undue union influence partly a consequence of weak PED administration Budget pressures in the sector 72 OPPORTUNITIES TO IMPROVE STATE CAPACITY Better monitoring and guidance to PEDs from DBE Performance and expenditure trends Implementation of PPNs Implementation of other Norms & Standards Partly to be achieved through improving data systems and extending connectivity to schools

Better planning, piloting and evaluating of new policy and programmes 73 OUTPUT 6: PARTNERSHIPS 74 PROBLEM STATEMENT Education in South Africa is founded on the premise of a social compact: The different spheres and departments of government Higher education institutions Teacher unions Parents and School Governing Body (SGB) organisations Business and civil society organisations International agencies, governments and donors. 75 THE JOURNEY SINCE 1994 South Africa has a long history of corporate, civil society

and international partnerships in education, partly emanating from the Struggle. E.g. Urban Foundation projects in response to Soweto Uprisings Three organisations stand out in the early years: JET South African Grant-Makers Association (SAGA) National Business Initiative Overseas Development Aid NECT 76 ACHIEVEMENTS & CHALLENGES Coordination Partnerships directorate established NECT Evaluation of programmes to inform wider implementation 77 RECOMMENDATION The Portfolio Committee discusses the approach

and content of the 25 year review and makes suggestions for strengthening. 78 79
