The 2011 Annual National Assessment (ANA) report that Grade 3s in South Africa scored an average 35% for literacy and 28% for numeracy and Grade 6 Learners scored an average 28% for languages and 30% for maths.  What has become evident in many schools is the fact that the contact hours are simply not enough.  Learners need more time than the time spent in the classroom.
