South Africa: Life today
Priscilla Maseleme, Gauteng

I am a grade 1 teacher in Alexandra township. Lots of things have changed for the better in education.

I am happy with the curriculum changes, but overcrowding is a big issue. I have 50 students in my class, but at least we have equipment like TVs and lots of books now.

Money is still an issue but at least everyone is now in one system. High schools have big problems with high drop out rates, but the Rainbow Nation is slowly getting there.
