Identifying the social and environmental factors that shape the achievement levels of grade 12 learners from two rural schools in the Oshikoto region of Namibia
The primary purpose of this study was to understand how certain factors could contribute to the low achievement levels of Grade 12 learners from two selected rural schools. For the purpose of this research these two schools were referred to as schools A and B. The academic performance of Grade 12 learners from schools A and B has been very low since 2008-2010. On average, these two senior secondary schools produced less than 5% of their learners who qualified for entrance to the University of Namibia (Ministry of Education, 2003-2010).
