Brahm Fleisch's recent book - 'Primary Education in Crisis' - is centred on a consideration of the nature and pattern of under achievement in reading and mathematics in South African primary schools. Having provided a detailed outline of this under achievement, the book moves onto a wide ranging analysis that cuts across educational, economic, political, health and cultural sectors, presenting factors that, according to significant bodies of evidence, suggest contribute to this pattern of under achievement in primary schools.
