"Educational policy, growth and labor market in south africa: a dynamic computable general equilibrium analysis"
by Maisonnave, Helene and Bernard Decaluwé


Abstract
Education is one of the major concerns in many countries, notably in developing countries. Indeed, improving access to education is the second aim of the Millennium Development Goals which were adopted by the United Nations in 2000.Compared to other African countries, South Africa has a high enrolment rate and has significant infrastructure. Nevertheless, there still exist strong inequalities between household groups in terms of access to education, as a result of South Africa’s past policies.In our study, we propose to analyse the impact of a pro-educational policy on different households as well as the impact on the labour market, in a dynamic framework. More precisely, we will develop a sequential dynamic CGE model capable of measuring the impact of an increase in expenditure in public education on the performance of the educational system, as well as on its consequences in the labour market in the short term and over a 20 year horizon.
