Education Support Services (ESS) or psycho-social educational support services is a crucial pillar to uphold the policy of inclusive education in South Africa. This book interrogates the current standing of ESS in South Africa, and how the service can be re-conceptualised within the next 10 years to ensure fair and quality support to learners and teachers across the vast and differing provincial educational landscape.

Dramatic discrepancies in provincial services were found – and possible solutions suggested to overcome a number of dysfunctionalities present in the current ESS. Focused planning is needed to ensure more standardised and fully functional ESS across South Africa.
