|dc.description.abstract||This research is aimed at looking into demography as a determinant of the education
system of Japan, Nigeria and South Africa. The various manifestations of this
phenomenon as it affects the afore-said countries are looked into in order to derive
lessons South Africa could learn from Japan and Nigeria. The main purpose of an
education system is to meet the needs of the target group for which it has been
designed. Demographic needs are but one of the few needs of the target group that
have to be addressed.
The literature study has been used in order to gain a better understanding of the
demographic issues with regard to the countries in question.
Chapter 2 presents some theoretical guidelines with regard to demography as a
determinant of the education system.
Chapter 3 presents demographic issues pertaining to Japan and how the Japanese
system of education takes cognisance of such issues. Subsequently, lessons which
could be learnt by the South African education system are highlighted.
Chapter 4 is devoted to the presentation of the demographic issues as determinant of
the education system of Nigeria and how the Nigerian education system takes
cognisance of such issues. Subsequently, lessons which could be of value to South
Africa are mernioned.

Africa and how these conditions are taken cognisance of by the education system.
