Small Drop in Number at Educational Institutions

The proportion of individuals aged between seven and 24 attending an educational institution has declined compared to 2007, says Stats SA

The proportion of individuals aged between seven and 24  attending an educational institution has declined  compared to 2007, according to Statistics South Africa’s 2010 General Household Survey.

Following a steady increase in the attendance rates between 2002 and 2007, the survey found a slight decrease in attendance rates relative to 2007 in all provinces except Gauteng.

The study cites the poor state of the economy as the reason for the decline, suggesting lack of access to funds following the global recession has undermined people’s ability to pay school fees.
