South Africa continues to suffer from problems in its school education system, notably in STEM subjects. University graduation in STEM-related courses is around 20%, contributing to a dire need for high level skills in STEM areas. All along the education ‘pipeline’ there are problems affecting the next level. Studies and statistics call for urgent intervention across all STEM subjects and all grades of schooling. See the concept document for further background.
