This research explores the development of non-government provision of
secondary education in South Africa and Malawi, reviews experience in
other Sub-Saharan African countries, and identifies lessons that can be
learned of relevance to policy and practice.
This book is organised in seven Chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the
research. Chapter 2 provides introductory discussion of the key
dimensions of the international debate on non-government providers and
service delivery, reviews the case for expanding secondary schooling,
identifies factors likely to affect growth, provides preliminary
definitions of types of non-government providers, and presents the
rationale for the choice of country cases. Chapter 3 consists of a
literature review drawing on recent work across Eastern and Southern
Africa and deepening understanding of central issues. Chapters 4 and 5
present condensed accounts of the country case studies for South Africa
and Malawi. In each case the shape and size of non-government provision
is mapped and placed within their national contexts, the policy and
regulatory frameworks are described, and the insights arising from
school case studies are explored. Chapter 6 collates perceptions across
the case studies. Chapter 7 identifies conclusions relevant to policy
and develops a toolkit of ideas for policy development.
