Abstract

The school environment is the main setting for educational instruction. Mariette Visser and Andrea Juan examined the resources, both tangible (school environment) and intangible (school climate), that influence school performance. They found that around 95% of grade 9 learners in the sample group were affected by inadequate educational resources at school.
