South Africa has one of the weakest school systems in the world. The crisis in schooling denies more than half the children in the country the chance to escape poverty. The reports on this page show the extent of the crisis and that schools are better when parents and communities control them. 

Our research has received widespread press coverage, with numerous editorials and stories appearing in the media. Our staff have also given a number of TV and radio interviews on the question of giving parents more power in schools. Follow the links to read our research in the media and listen to our experts speak on the topic. 

If you agree, then endorse our charter to show South Africa’s politicians that you want parents and communities to take back control of South Africa's schools.
