Author: Malope, Patrick; Gaetsewe, Tshepiso; Khanie, Goitseone; Molefhi, Koketso; MacKenzie, L.
Abstract: The Government of Botswana has over the years invested significantly in the education sector, with the sector receiving about 25% of total budgetary allocations for the past two decades (Budget Speech, 2018). Human capital development is one of the six priority areas for National Development Plan 11 (NDP11). This is meant to spear heard the transition of the economy from one that is resourcedriven to a knowledge-based one as aspired by Vision 2036. The objective of this brief is to analyse the budgetary allocation to the education sector to determine as to whether it is in line with NDP11 goals and objectives. The brief also outlines the performance of the sector as well as challenges the sector faces and the recommendations for a way forward.
