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.
