Naptosa opposes bill that removes powers from SGBs to appoint school principals
A new draft bill aimed at removing school governing bodies powers to appoint school principals, their deputies and heads of departments has been put forward.
This new bill is aimed at ending corruption and disputes over the appointment of principals.
Africa Melane on 702Breakfast chats to National Professional Teachers’ Organisation (Naptosa) executive director Basil Manuel to weigh in on the matter.
There is an attempt to limit the democratisation of schools and centralise it within the provincial departments. We see this draft as sinister as if you are worried about corruption. You need to worry about corruption within the department.Basil Manuel, Executive director - Naptosa
He says governing bodies appointing principals is not a perfect system, but it is better than what is proposed by the department.
