Economics of Education I

The aims of this course are to provide students with the tools to analyse education from an economic perspective. For this purpose, the course introduces students to the literature on the Economics of Education and to related literature from other fields of economics (e.g. Public Finance, Labour economics, etc.) that have a bearing on education. The course is specifically targeted to dealing with some of the major economic issues related to education in the South African context. The historical inequity in access and quality of education makes it a highly charged and very important issue in South Africa, with major implications also for the labour market.

Course instructors: Servaas van der Berg, Pierre de Villiers, and Nic Spaull
