Daniella Broomberg's curator insight, October 6, 2013 8:30 AM

 Mamphela Ramphele is brilliant.

 

In this article she addresses our education crisis in 5 points and provides solutions that can be accomplished through active participations.

 

Ramphele outlines the following problems:

1. A lack of accountability and a culture of impunity in governement

2. Poor policy coherence and implementation

3. The habit of the private sector to act as complacent spectators

4. Academic elitism

5. A low level of proffessionalism in teachers

 

Ramphele addresses each problem with a viable solution, her outlook is positive and embracing. Such an attituide should be seen more in discussions of education in South Africa. I believe she addresses the crucial issues of South African education. The solutions she provides are logical and doable. 

 

She encourages active leadership at all levels, an embracing attituide towards IT infused learning and a focus on African tradition, language and culture. 

 

I wholeheartedly agree that in order to transend the past, our education system must be ACTIVE and INNOVATIVE.
