[LISTEN] What makes private schools a cut above the rest?

Radio 702's Ray White speaks to the executive director of the Independent Schools Association, Lebogang Montjane, about what makes a private school a cut above the rest.

JOHANNESBURG - The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) scored a 98.92% matric pass rate for 2018, an increase from 98.76% the previous year.

Radio 702's Ray White speaks to the executive director of the Independent Schools Association (Isasa), Lebogang Montjane, about what makes a private school a cut above the rest.

"Is there a formula or set of regulations when starting a private school as a business?" asks White.

“As Isasa, we have a guideline on how to start a private school. But in effect, all schools must comply with the regulations of the country, which says all schools must be registered. We’ve seen a proliferation of new independent schools in the country, especially post-democracy,” says Montjane.

Montjane says there are many successful schools, both public and independent.
