Abstract

There seems to be little doubt in the minds of most well-informed opinion-makers that the teacher work force in South Africa has been undergoing turbulent change in the last few years. Furthermore, with the onset of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, further turbulence is predicted. Sharing this commonly held view, and wanting to put some parameters around this presumed past and future turbulence, we started out to undertake a systematic analysis of the main data sources available.
