South Africa's education

05 December 2012, 13:45

Yesterday The Times published stats for math ,simply they were horrendous no wonder no one wants to do math .Some comments that have come out say it is due to a failed system ,lack of knowledge of basic principals [times table],a dismally low level of achievement ,they say there are too many subjects .Last i saw it was about 12/13 subjects up to grade 9 ,then about 7[LO included] from grade 10 to grade 12.I remember in my final year during teachers strikes that for two days during the strikes,learners who did math and physics came in for hour long  classes not to mention the period of extra classes ,despite this working in 4 different books for MATH and 2 for PHSYSICS it was still a struggle to finish which isn't a surprise because apparently overseas where the classes are smaller they divided these subjects into a further two subjects . Consider that without teachers and large work loads there are kids out there who achieve good results in the face adversity , doesn't that say something ,give kids a good foundation ,qualified teachers ,a decent classroom and textbooks ,those with a desire to succeed and who have a multitude of choices will certainly succeed.

Yes I am a Christian and no I am ...

I am tired of people feeling like they can say what ever they want about Christians, that they can make fun of and joke about Christians, yet they would not dare do it to other faiths or denominations. Read more...
