A concern

18 June 2014, 12:35
I am writing on behalf of learners studying mostly under rough circumstances whom I believe if correct measures are put in place, they have a best possible chance of succeeding. I am not going to dwell on infrastructure because we all know where the funds for that ends. Yes, it ends up in the very same pockets of those who are entrusted in ensuring the safety of the learners in the different parts of RSA. It seems the utters of Rev. Chikane about political animals not respecting constitution are playing themselves out. Those animals are ready to mess up constitution if their interests are not satisfied.
Anyway, apart from infrastructure, I think the system used to prepare the mind of a learner from 'public' school is not in line with their mandates like vuk'usenzele. I am talking about the books which are used to teach learners, those are not inspirational books to say the least. they don't motivate the learner to be the best they can ever be. The question which always troubled me was that: why wasn't I allowed to learn about the greatest achievers of the 1600, 1800 et al? why wasn't I made aware that even if am not grasping the schooling concept it is still possible to breakthrough. 
Ok, maybe they might argue that learners need to understand the fundamental concepts of a particular language. If a 'black' toddler by age 5 is able to speak fluent English, isn't time we let our children loose on what is normally accepted as impossibilities? I think the government needs to establish its own curriculum which will persuade learners to wake up and do it for themselves. I other African countries, you find kids at a tender age of 10 they understand electronics to the core. i am talking about building stuff. Kids must be allowed to use their brains to the best possible altitude to try and solve some of the problems we are facing today.
This can be achieved with a little bit of coaching. I mean, if kids at schools were to be 'forced' to read inspirational or leadership books and explain them at a later stage, an entrepreneur or a visionary will be uprooted before they even reach matric. It is almost an impossible dream for that kid in the dusty streets of Marapyane to even dream of competing in athletics or soccer for their nation. Reason can be articulated to self-doubt which is seldom caused by one's surroundings. we need the government to put such measures in place to awaken the sleeping leader or giant in these kids. Think of guys like Vusi Thembekwayo (29), think of Mr Tebeila...The stories of these guys can shape the kids to be unstoppable.
