Bantu education is alive and well

19 April 2012, 14:08

Recently I made a shocking discovery that the mentality of certain teachers are taking us back to Bantu and gutter education. Well is it true? Can teaching be classified as a job or a calling? Those teachers who only see the negative in learners and take every opportunity to strike, can they be classified as people with a calling on their lives to help others? These are some of the many questions that I have in my mind.

Recently I had a one on one meeting with my 7 year old son’s teacher. The duration of the meeting was approximately 30min. When I walked into the class room she already had an attitude, when she started talking to me, she wasted half my time complaining about the class and there after she had nothing good to say about my son. I just kept quiet and walked out.Ive never experienced something like this in my life.

If this teacher had a calling on her life to serve others would she only she the negative in a group 30 seven year olds? Teachers play a very important role in this country, they need to bring out the best in our children and develop them for greatness. The teachers with the calling are the ones who form a partnership with the parents.

Based on my experience with my son’s teacher I’m left with two assumptions “the teacher lost her calling or she just comes to work to get paid”. Well if some teachers don’t experience a paradigm shift towards their careers then our young democracy will be destined for Bantu and gutter education.

Strange, I would have thought that in any country, not just ours, the burning down of 13 schools, would be sensational front page news and intense interest. Read more...
