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.
