Most of our public schools have been reduced to day care centres where kids go so they are not left alone at home when their parents go to work. This narrative needs to change. The masses of South Africans can only afford to go to public schools. If they are not well run, we have a bleak future.
I think the starting point is to support and capacitate the Governing Bodies (SGBs) of public schools and NGOs/NPOs in basic education to ensure ethical and effective governance, clean administration and accountable leadership.
If all professionals aligned themselves to at least one public school or NPO/NGO by donating money/time/resources/services I think we can turn the corner.
One Professional One Public School/NGO/NPO!!! For a better basic education in South Africa!!
