What happened to schools as a safe space to escape into imagination?

Violence in schools

Callers on The Eusebius McKaiser Show debate the recent spate of violence in SA schools.

With the recent spate of violence in South African schools, callers on The Eusebius McKaiser Show weighed in on why schools are no longer a safe space to escape into a world of imagination.

Percy a caller says we have this social makeup of violence in our schools.

To what extent is the failure to capture imaginations in class because of the teaching methodology, allowing kids minds to be unoccupied with something better?

Percy, caller

After all is the school not supposed to be the avenue where kids are able to escape and dwell on their ability to be creative?

Percy, caller

To look at their ability to look beyond the circumstances that they grow up under, it seems to me that we are inevitably saying that the escape that other people have said what school was for them, we seem to be saying that that escape is no longer available.

Percy, caller

He says the obvious question should be, why are we losing that?

Simphiwe another caller says it is under Angie Motshekga's watch that schools have become so violent.

Under her watch, Mam' Angie was actually responsible for the militarisation of Cosas which has caused a number of problems in schools and that list is endless.

Simphiwe, caller

It was during her time where you saw Sadtu becoming a very distant entity. So if you want to know where the inspired teachers have gone, they were chased away by Sadtu who advocated for many rights that led to teaching becoming a job instead of a calling.

Simphiwe, caller

He adds while he sympathises with the atrocities in schools, Motshekga should bare some of the responsibilities to the state we find schools in currently.

Listen below to the full open line.
