This report consolidates the findings from two fieldwork site visits for the Consortium for Research on Educational Access, Transitions and Equity (CREATE) project. It begins by sketching the broader access concerns in South Africa. After explaining the methodology, it provides an initial overview and baseline status report on the communities and schools in which fieldwork took place, locating them in their wider context. It then provides a first analysis of children who drop out of school, and of those vulnerable to dropping out.
