Education

The inequalities in levels of education (Table 7) are underpinned by inequalities in the provision of school education:

In 1992 44% of black matric candidates passed and in 1993 the success rate declined to 38.5%. Over R27-billion or 21.4% of the 1993/94 Budget was allocated to education. This is 7.3% of the country's gross domestic product.
