Education entrepreneurs could upgrade South Africa’s schooling – EUSTACE DAVIE
Economist Thomas Sowell said: “It is not what education teaches us directly, but how well it prepares us to learn ourselves that is the ultimate measure of its value”.

The current one-size-fits-all schooling does not provide the variety that meets the needs of individual participants. It also places major limitations on the ability and incentives of teachers to use their knowledge and abilities to provide high-quality education and training that prepares young people for taking on the challenges of adulthood, especially their working lives.
