Abstract

The first systematic assessment and evaluation of the senior phase of the education system (Grade 9 learners) suggests that simply ensuring that schools have access to teaching and learning resources as proposed in the Department of Basic Education's Action Plan to 2014 will not be enough, according to GEORGE FRAMPONG and CHARLOTTE MOTHA.
