South African Art
Like the frog ornament above, wire and bead
pieces and collectibles are sold on almost every
street corner in South Africa. Things like mini
bicycles and globes are popular.
Beading is very popular in South Africa. It was
once the sign of tribal royalty. Beads are used
for jewelry, decorating items such as matchboxes,
and Ndebele dolls.

Education in South Africa

  • By law, no child can be excluded from a state
    school if his or her parents can't afford to pay
    the fees.
  • 86.4 of the population is literate.
  • South Africa has more than a million students
    enrolled in the country's 24 state-funded
    institutions
  • 11 universities
  • 5 universities of technology and
  • 6 comprehensive institutions.
  • In the 1990s, only about 40 of the population
