|2012 06 25 Think Fest 2012: The End Of Model C Schools As We Know Them?|
Presented by the Legal Resources Centre
Model C schools in South Africa are public schools which find themselves under enormous pressure over the number of children
applying to be admitted, the number of children that the Government would like them to accommodate, and various judgments and regulations that are impacting on their autonomy. The Legal Resources Centre takes recent cases and government regulations as their starting point in this investigative discussion on the state of education in South Africa.
