KST’s Kaya Nyati chatted to ENCA recently about Fezile Dabi, South Africa’s top performing district for matric results. Nyati discussed lessons that other provinces can learn from the KST & FSDoE partnership, and how private- public partnerships can effectively transform our education system.

Free State province attained 87.5% for the 2018 matric results. Fezile Dabi, the top performing district nationally, attained 92.3% and the Motheo district attained 85.1%.

KST, implements District Whole School Development in Fezile Dabi and Motheo districts in the Free State. This is implemented through a partnership between Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation, Kagiso Trust and the Free State Department of Education.
