On Wednesday 8 October, Chantell was on her regular spot as a trends analyst for Kieno Kammies on 567 Cape Talk. On this occasion, Chantell provided arguments for the controversial proposed changes to the South African education system that would see learners able to leave school with a certificate at the end of Grade 7 (about 14 years-old).
Chantell points out the strategic decision-making already needed of learners at that age, highlights some uncomfortable truths about the current education system, and clarifies the big ‘ifs’ needed to be in place for the new proposals to work.
She also explains how Growing Foxes fits into the picture.
