This fifteen-part video course covers philosophical problems that bear directly upon education. Why I say that, there is a lot of ‘lack’ in all sectors of private and government and society there has been a lowering of educational standards, that even a degree, or a understanding curve amongst the students is irrelevant to the present demands of modern South Africa. The separation of the education division into two has made the circumstance worse, due to the fact accountability is now further diluted.
And there is not wonderful leadership – the present Minister of Basic Education, when she was still MEC for education, preferred dancing in the streets in support of Zuma, when he was on trial, to attending a meeting on education called by the then MInister, Naledi Pandor. Lastly there is the issue of the provision of the physical structures for supplying education – there are still too many young children possessing to go to school under trees alternatively of in classrooms. The apartheid regime deliberately provided sub-common education for lacks, for clear factors.
The primary situation in all of this is the 1 of accountability – government has not held anybody accountable all down the line – from the public servants in the education departments, to the teachers, to the learners, and specially to the principals. Sorry about the rant, but I am passionate about education and really feel that the nation is getting short-changed in this regard.
South Africa spends proportionately much more than any other country in the planet on education and but, since of the issue of discipline and accountability we still have this difficulty. I consider education is going to turn into the ANC’s Achilles heel – the worst aspect of the lack of service delivery. That appears like a basic and apparent point to do, but it is central to his philosophy.
And encounter is the greatest education for me. Theories are the foundations but when you are truly out there at the field of your specialization, these who have a lot more expertise will teach you to get familiar with the actual world of your industry. You are appropriate about the indoctrination of youth it really is one particular of the issues I don’t like about the education program (in America, I can’t speak for other nations). Comparable to what Jean Piaget defined as the finish aim of education: autonomy, each in the character and intellectual spheres.
