SA teachers don’t spend enough time in class
South African teachers reportedly on average spend less than 50% of their teaching time in class each week.
This figure was contained in a survey conducted by the SA Institute of Race Relations.
As a result, many parents turned to private schools for their children's education.
The number of pupils in private schools had increased from 256 thousand in the year 2000 to more than 450 thousand to date.
Ten percent of 24 451 state schools lacked water facilities and 155 relied on the bucket system. It’s said that 913 schools did not have toilet facilities.
