Parents - look at yourself

07 February 2012, 12:06

There is one factor we should consider when tackling the education system in our country is that, learning begins at home.


The learning of a child is a collective effort, where everybody plays his part in the upbringing of a child. The Education System has its limits, we should acknowledge that, and our society should also take part but not continue attacking the Education departments for its faults.


A child starts his lessons at home, and it ends at home, therefore our community should also take initiatives, by working together with our education department in producing quality Curriculum that will help our suffering children.


The finger should not be pointing in one direction, but also ask yourself, what have I done to add value in the life of my child and my neighbours?


In the African culture it was the responsibility of every adult in the community to take charge of the future of every child in tribe. Any adult person had the right to teach or correct a young person irrespective of his/her parents, bringing-up a child was taken as a joint effort, amongst the community.


It is time that our parents and school governing bodies to work together in formulating effective and efficient working methods, to improve the quality of our education system, not for us but our children sake.
