Dropout prevention: what could it look like?

Using data to reduce dropout
You can read more about this in our POLICY BRIEF.

Under this theme, we have various calls to action like making dropout a (KPI) so that government and education officials are held accountable. Dropout prevention should be an explicit goal of the education system. Dropout should be a key performance indicator (KPI) for PEDs, and the national department must set reduction targets to hold officials accountable.Read more.


Why we need accelerated catch-up and how it could look

Children are getting stuck in our education system in many cases because they do not have the foundational literacy and numeracy skills to grasp the curriculum. We can see evidence of this in our incredibly high rate of repetition nationally.

In fact the majority of learners (between 55% and 59% ) in Grades 10, 11, and 12 are over-age for their grade. In a typical Grade 10, 11, or 12 class in South Africa, it is more common for learners to be over-age than to be the correct age-for-grade. There is also evidence of a strong bottleneck effect in the FET phase, whereby learners seem to get “stuck” in Grade 10 for two or more years, and only a fraction of learners manages to make it to Grade 12.
