Eastern Cape schools - resourcing and inequality

Hendricks, M. (2008) Eastern Cape schools - resourcing and inequality. In: The State of the Eastern Cape. Publisher to be determined, [S.l.], pp. 1-14. (In Press)




[Introduction] This chapter looks at the causes and effects of the widely varying degree of access to material resources across schools in the Eastern Cape. Starting with a broad overview of schools and classroom resources across the whole province, I go on to examine the Grahamstown education district. I discuss the inequalities in resource provision between groupings of schools in the district: comparing independent and state schools, and also examining disparities across schools in different localities within the government sector. The role of parents in providing resources for their children’s schooling is also discussed, as are the relationships among the various participants in education, such as non-governmental organisations, officials of the Department of Education, and teachers
