The mass shift to online schooling during the Covid-19 pandemic disproportionately disadvantaged poorer children, who had a much smaller chance of accessing online education compared to children from wealthier households.


Homeschooling in South Africa has undergone tremendous change, with the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating trends by months, rather than years.

 


South Africa will celebrate 28 years of democracy as we recognise Freedom Day on 27 April. Over the last few decades, our country has come a long way. Literacy rates have increased from 82.4% to 95%, according to data from UNESCO. In 1994, 58% of public-school learners in Grade 12 passed matric, while in 2021 that figure was 76.4%.


At some or other point during their child's education, most parents will experience the frustration of feeling that their child is just a 'face in the crowd' at school; whether it's because they are being left behind while the class moves on, because they are alone out front and losing interest, or because their strengths and interests simply do not align with the 'expected norms'.  


ADvTECH, South Africa’s leading private education provider, says it supports government’s intentions to create the conditions to regulate and quality assure the establishment and maintenance of online schools in South Africa, and looks forward to working with relevant authorities to ensure measures introduced will lead to an improved and quality educational experience for all online students.
