Johannesburg - Private school attendance rose by 87 percent between 2000 and 2011, according to a report on Thursday.

Parents were losing faith in public schools, where enrolment only grew by 13 percent in the same period, reported Business Day, quoting from the SA Institute of Race Relations' latest survey.

According to the survey, the number of private schools grew from 971 to 1486 between 2000 and 2011.

However, the proportion of pupils in private schools remained at four percent of children enrolled in the education system. - Sapa
