The state of our education system - NEEDU Nick Taylor 03 May Report on the foundation phase says appointments and promotions have to be made on the basis of expertise National Report The State of Literacy Teaching and Learning in the Foundation Phase April 1 Introduction The object of the common school system in Massachusetts was to give to every child in the Commonwealth a free, straight solid path-way by which he could walk directly up from the ignorance of an infant to a knowledge of the primary duties of a man; and could acquire a power and an invincible will to discharge them.
Have our children such a way? Are they walking in it? Why do so many, who enter it, falter therein? Are there not many, who miss it altogether?
What can be done to reclaim them? What can be done to rescue faculties, powers, divine endowments, graciously designed for individual and social good, from being perverted to individual and social calamity? These are the questions of deep and intense interest which I have proposed to myself and upon which I have sought for information and counsel.
Mann, South Africans may be proud that we have adopted a system of public schooling that transcends the ideals of the good people of Massachusetts in the early nineteenth century, providing the benefits of schooling not only to girls in equal measure as to boys, but of broadening the provision of what has become a key element of any complex society to children of all races and creeds.
But the questions asked so poignantly above by Horace Mann, first Secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education, haunt South African schooling today.
Lest we feel exceptional in this regard, it is well Analysis and interpretation of don juan note that the tendencies described so eloquently by horace Mann are characteristics seemingly endemic to large systems. The emergence of public schooling in Massachusetts was, from its earliest days, plagued by problems of inefficiency and waste.
Thus, the Secretary was directed to studying the state of schooling, and diffusing: These functions are formally provided for in the current system.
The functionality of both could be significantly improved, and NEEDU will make recommendations toward that end. Before getting into the substance of this, the first response to its brief, it is necessary to explain the activities undertaken by the Unit over this period, and to locate these within a more detailed understanding of that brief Section 2.
This is followed by a diagnosis of the factors that inhibit quality schooling in South Africa at the present time Section 3and a detailed discussion of the questions of language Section 4literacy Section 5and instructional leadership Section 6.
The report ends with a consolidated set of recommendations Section 7. A discussion on the question of accountability in schooling follows 2. Thereafter, in section 2. The need for a facility of this kind was first formally articulated in a resolution passed at the Polokwane conference of the ANC in December This was followed by the appointment by Minister of Education Naledi pandor of a Committee to investigate the matter.
The Ministerial Committee recommended that NEEDU should provide the Minister of Education with an authoritative, analytical and accurate account on the state of schools in South Africa and, in particular, on the status of teaching and learning.
The present document is the first such report to the Minister of Basic Education. This involved confronting choices on two key issues for its research: Besides, a number of such studies have been done and the broad associations between school-level practices and test scores are known Taylor et al, forthcoming.
In-depth studies, which investigate the complex ecology of the school, are far more likely to yield insights into both the substantive practices that underlie formal policy compliance, and the causal relationships between these practices and student learning.
In the words of the Ministerial Committee, NEEDU decided to adopt an evaluative approach to school assessment why the school performs as it does and how it could improverather than to undertake monitoring of schools how good the school is.
The evaluation approach adopted here is labour intensive, a fact which, first, limits the number of schools that can be evaluated, and consequently limits the generalisability of the findings. While this design may not satisfy the rigours of statistics, it is likely to be of greater use to policy makers and practitioners than yet another survey, the outcomes of which are largely already known.
In view of the fact that the new Curriculum and Assessment policy Statement CApS was due to be instituted in Grades inthe Foundation phase Fp seemed a sensible place to start. Besides, over the past 18 years attention has been heavily concentrated on the top end of the system Gradesand in particular on the National Senior Certificate NSC examination at the end of Grade But the most compelling reason to focus on the Fp is the fact that it is here that the base for all future learning is established.
If the rudiments of reading, writing and calculating are not firmly entrenched by the end of Grade 3, then both learning opportunities and the larger life chances of young citizens will be curtailed. It was therefore decided to choose the FP as the focus for investigation during Furthermore, it was decided that curriculum delivery should constitute the primary object of these investigations.
Curriculum delivery is an on-going process, which starts with the issuing of policy at the national level by the Department of Basic Education DBE. This is followed by the procurement and delivery of resources and the provision of support systems to schools by provinces and districts.
Curriculum delivery is continued through the organisation and management of time and human and material resources by school leaders, culminating in teaching and learning activities conducted by teachers in classrooms. These are iterative processes, with multiple feedback loops, all coordinated by tighter or looser instructional leadership practices and accountability measures up and down the successive levels of the system.
Tracking the quality of curriculum delivery is a complex and time-consuming task. While Grade R is formally part of the FP, given the specialist nature of this important pre-school year, it was decided not to evaluate it in but to make it a special focus at a later date.
Areas excluded from investigation in include: Although we do express an opinion on problems regarding the last of these, by and large pursuing activities such as these would require not only a different cohort of evaluators, but also a far greater number than the 18 professional curriculum evaluators with which the organisation commenced the year.
Important as these systems are in providing the conditions for learning, the focus of this report is on the core business of schooling:Søren Kierkegaard’s Interpretation of Mozart’s Opera Don Giovanni: An Appraisal and Theological Response by Dr.

[Juan Non-Volokh, PM] IN DEFENSE OF DEROY: At the risk of angering one of my kind hosts, I wish to defend Deroy Murdock's attack on anti-ExxonMobil activism. Sasha raises many good points in his post, but I think he concedes too much to the anti-corporate campaigners.
There is no doubt that ExxonMobil is a less-than-perfect . Don Juan by Lord Byron: Summary and Critical Analysis Byron, however, manages to expose so many things of the 'vain culture' of his society by means of the many digressions and passing comments. The delightful story is intended to give the reader some corrective laughter.
