It is expected to strengthen the foundation of the child’s schooling career and ensure that basic numeracy and literacy skills are grasped at an early age.

Are we moving in the right direction?

We have always looked to the matric pass rate as one of the main indicators of the level and quality of education in the country but should we find a more direct way of measuring literacy and numeracy in the country?
