South African education is in crisis.
We’ve dedicated ourselves to producing films for Africa’s children, starting with the heroes of SA education. Stay tuned!
“The World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Information Technology Report 2013 ranks South Africa’s Maths and Science education second last in the world, only ahead of Yemen. It further ranks the quality of our education system 140 of 144 countries and our Internet Access in Schools, 111 of 143 countries. 21 years after our new constitution and SA education seems to be on a slippery slope. South Africans are frustrated and despondent.
Despite the status quo, there are numerous heroes in the public and private sector that are systematically transforming the social landscape in South Africa.”
