Education across Generations in South Africa

Author

Listed:
  • Thomas, Duncan

Abstract

Racially segregated education was a central pillar propping up the apartheid system in South Africa. The 1953 Bantu Education Act centralized control of black education and linked tax receipts from black to public expenditure on their education. In 1975, expenditure on the average white was more than 15 times larger than that on the average black student.
