Matric pass rate may rise, however celebrating matric pass rate has become almost farcical says Equal Education


Matric pass rate may rise, however celebrating matric pass rate has become almost farcical says Equal Education.
Guest: Roné McFarlane - Co-Head of Research at Equal Education

Lobby group Equal Education says while the release of the matric results remains a critical moment for hundreds of thousands of learners, these results do not provide a good indication of the health of the education system as a whole.  Equal Education has cautioned that it is extremely critical for the department of basic education (DBE) to ensure that pupils got a “quality” education in the foundation phase of schooling to avoid dropping out of the system, especially with reports that nationally, only 60% of learners reach grade 12 and only 37% of those who start the journey actually pass.
