If we don’t get education right, we won’t get anything right, warns this education specialist at the Development Bank of Southern Africa.
Although in this diverse society one thing we agree on is the importance of education – he suggests that when it comes to putting aspirations into practice we fail lamentably.
No need to repeat Bloch’s figures on how appalling are our results. Take it as read (if that isn’t wishful thinking in a country that “is the worst performer… in literacy, probably in the world”). Not that we are short of resources: huge amounts are devoted to education… and as regularly wasted.
- The Toxic Mix: What’s wrong with South Africa’s schools and how to fix it by Graeme Bloch
