Gauteng MEC for Education, Barbara Creecy, has acknowledged that there are still a significant number of schools that do not deliver quality when measured in terms of pupil outcomes.
Creecy says that the consequences of this are that many of the youth end up having education without the basics they will need to make their way in the world. She says that the main challenge for any school system is to provide every child with almost one million minutes of quality education.
“We need to recognise that this poverty of attainment feeds the poverty of aspiration and self esteem in our pupils,” says Creecy.
