Background on South Africa
South Africa has one of the largest economies in Africa, but its education challenges are immense. Educational inequality persists as a legacy of the differentiated government administration and school systems characteristic of the Apartheid era.
Now, South Africa is committed to building a new era, and CEI has identified over 120 programs focused on improving the access, quality, and equality of the country’s education ecosystem.
Most programs operate in peri-urban and rural areas targeting children otherwise at risk of not attending school or students with high drop-out rates. In addition, there are several promising models in the areas of teacher training and evaluation, curriculum reforms, education technology, early childhood development.
