Improved education performance big step towards Vision 2030
The Social Protection, Community and Human Development Cluster has commended the advances made to improve the state of education in South Africa.
The Human Sciences Research Council recently released the results of South Africa’s participation in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), which show a steady but upward trajectory of the education sector.
“We are a leading African participant among 59 countries in TIMSS 2015. Our participation in internationally benchmarked studies provides valuable and credible information that… affirms the upward trajectory in the sector, evidenced by improved Mathematics and Science skills, better schooling conditions and decreasing inequality in education communities,” said Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini on Monday.
