Teachers Without Jobs, Children Without Teachers

What are we worried about?  This should be as simple as matching puzzle blocks for children.  But we forget, we are in South Africa and we are talking about education in the Eastern Cape, yet again.

This is a tale of despair that has been simmering for almost a decade.  Contrast that story to this story about BRAC, one of the largest NGOs in the world, with over 100 000 employees, which includes in its endeavours, a pre-primary and primary school system  that educates 1.25 million children, mostly the poorest of the poor.   If an NGO in Bangladesh can do it, why can’t a National and Provincial Government department in South Africa do it?  Clearly we are getting something wrong in South Africa.

A Direct Democracy Forum administration would empower every willing educator and student in the country and such tales of despair would become a thing of the past.  See DDF Education Policies.

The buck stops at the ballot box.
