Business bigwigs go back to school

“If you want to help fix education, then do it. Don’t just talk about the problems. Get stuck in and help”. So believe the South African Revenue Service’s acting chief financial officer, Bob Head.

Head is part of a movement of business leaders doing their bit to fix the ailing state schooling system. Driven by the nongovernmental organisation Partners for Possibility, the businesspeople join forces with public school principals to transfer skills.
