Choices in education and training for school leavers have increased significantly due to increasing private investments in this area but there is very little comparative information on the quality of these opportunities or the accssibility of these opportunities to capable students who can not afford to pay. Could this be a thrust area for the forum?
Getting a child into Year 1 of school, government or private has become a traumatic and unpleasant event. Central government does not have to be the solver of all problems. How have individual schools, provincial authorities, civil society organizations or the private sector responded to the crisis? What can we learn from them? What else can be done?
