An interesting listen for all parents or teachers of 3-7 year olds about development and learning.

"When we encourage children to follow their own lead, we get better academic results. When we push the child slightly, that tends to inhibit risk taking, which is a fundamental part of building your intelligence."

We do have solutions for SA’s reading crisis 12/02/2018

"One of the key findings of the Pirls was the powerful effect of preschool education. In South Africa, fewer than half of children aged three to four are exposed to early learning."

Recently we published a post about South Africa's struggling reading levels with the comparison on a global scale. From a more positive angle, solutions to South Africa's education crisis do exist, and New Korland Academy plans to be a part of it.

Instilling a healthier relationship with maths and sciences in South African learners should begin at an Early Childhood Development (ECD) level. While results in KZN have improved over the past few years, much more needs to be done to scrape us off the bottom of the barrel.

According to the Gauteng DOE, in 2015, most Grade R learners were not ready to enter the formal schooling system at the end of their grade R year.
