Abstract:

The formal school system developed after the Europeans arrived in South Africa, but until South Africa became a Union in 1910 it was almost exclusively provided for white children. The other racial groups were incorporated into the system to a larger extent in the 20th century, but due to the higher per capita expenditure on white learners they did not receive an education of the same quality. The school system can be divided into the former Indian and white systems that operate well, while the former systems for blacks and coloureds do not operate well at all. This is confirmed in national and international studies done in the democratic era after 1994. Currently only a small part of the school system is operating efficiently. Die formele skoolstelsel het ontstaan met die aankoms van die Europeërs in Suid-Afrika, maar is tot Uniewording in 1910 bykans uitsluitlik aan Blanke leerders voorsien. In die 20ste eeu word die ander rassegroepe meer by die skoolstelsel betrek, maar omdat per capita veel meer op die Blanke stelsel spandeer is, ontvang die ander groepe nie onderwys van dieselfde kwaliteit nie. Die skoolstelsel kan opgedeel word in die voormalige stelsels vir Indiër en Blanke leerders wat goed opereer en die voormalige stelsels vir Swart en Bruin leerders wat swak funksioneer. Dit word in nasionale en internasionale studies in die demokratiese bestel na 1994 bevestig. Tans is daar net ‘n klein deel van die skoolstelsel wat effektief opereer.
