A couple of points.
1. This isn't money that the government is spending. It's over and above.

EDIT: Btw R12k isn't enough for a private school in any case.
1 No it's not. Read the proposal in the article. It is "instead of" the current system.

2 Obviously if you want to send your kids to a private (for profit)school you'll have to pay in the difference.

How can it be instead when you still have to maintain all schools and building new ones? It doesn't make sense.

And if you don't it's just another public school.

Each school will set its own price and hope to attract enough kids to run the school. Some schools will fail and shut down, others will survive, some may thrive.

Doesn't benefit anyone as there's already a shortage of schools so no school will shut down. All you're doing is giving poorer children a chance at a higher rank meaning you're displacing those in the higher ranks into lower ranks.

so pupils will become currency. something familiar about this. didnt people say its bad if prisoners become currency. werent slaves currency as well ..lol going a bit far

some bad people out there will be wondering how they can put that r12k in their pocket.

lets say thats all fine. pupils flock to better schools, those that cannot for what ever reason, like... life, have to stay where they are. what happens to them when their local school which might have been shitty, but is still something, disappears.

i dno, "we cant have nice things" keeps smacking us in the face
