Résumé partiel
This study is an attempt to examine the implementation of the cost sharing policy in Namibia. The study was planned and designed to investigate the effects of cost sharing in six secondary schools in the Oshikoto Region and how it impacted on equity in access of learners to secondary schooling. All education stakeholders form the Director of the Educational Region, Inspectors, principals, learners and parents participated in the research study by way of answering either questionnaires or taking part in interviews with the researcher. The study gathered a wealth of information from those interviewed relevant to the study of the effects of cost sharing in an independent Namibia. The study revealed that the cost sharing policy has affected households and learners of the Oshikoto Region negatively. Due to the fact that the majority of parents in the Region live in rural areas with less developmental infrastructure and hence are therefore unemployed, they find it hard to sustain the escalating cost of education at secondary level. The result of the innaffordability of school fees forces many parents to take their children out of school in order for them to go to urban centres to look for work.
