Realising the right to Basic Education in South Africa
An update of the policy effort, resource allocation & enjoyment of the right
to Basic Education in South Africa
The Studies in Poverty and Inequality Institute (SPII) is an independent research think tank that focuses on generating new knowledge, information and analysis in the field of poverty and inequality studies.
This working paper has been undertaken as part of the ‘Monitoring the progressive realisation of socio-economic rights’ project conducted by SPII with the support of Foundation for Human Rights and the endorsement from the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC).
The objective of this project through the combination of policy and budget analysis and statistical indicators is to provide a comprehensive framework and set of tools to monitor the progressive realisation of socio-economic rights. It is hoped that this project will be a useful tool for policy makers, for those that exercise oversight over the executive, including Parliament and Chapter Nine institutions (notably the SAHRC), and civil society.
