WEF ranks SA state of education poorly

Poor education in South Africa is suppressing the ability of children to have better lives than their parents. This is one of the findings of a recent report from the World Economic Forum. The report ranked the country as one of the worst performers in terms of social mobility, education, health and employment outcomes. It has also been reported recently that over 300 schools in South Africa are dropping maths as a subject choice for learners. On the occasion of the second International Day of Education, Channel Africa's Jane Rabothata spoke to Bailey Blake who is the Chief of SPARK Schools, a network of independent & private schools.
