SA education needs accountability to succeed- Trevor Manuel
The former Finance Minister said all parties involved should play their roles to make sure kids pass.
CAPE TOWN - Former Finance Minister Trevor Manuel said for education to succeed and improve there must be accountability.
He spoke at a fund raising event for the Mitchells Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust in Cape Town yesterday.
Manuel established the trust in 2010 to support deserving students from the Mitchells Plain area.
The trust will award at least R1 million in bursaries this year
Manuel said accountability in education is key.
"It's whether we can ensure three levels of accountability in education. It's a school to the community, it's the staff to the management, principal in particular, and it's that interaction between educators and the parents. If we don't get those things right, then you don't succeed in education.
