The Toxic Mix

I had the good fortune of hearing Graeme Bloch talk at a conference I attended, and was therefore pleased to get hold of a copy of The Toxic Mix. This is a short work in which he details the various problems in South Africa’s education system, as well as some possible solutions to improve matters.

I was somewhat disappointed by the book, however. While it presented a very good overview of the state of education in our country, I found myself learning little that I didn’t already know. Similarly, while his solutions are logical, I found them slightly to high-level, and not quite at a point where they can be implemented.

Nevertheless, this is an interesting book, and worth the effort for those interested in South Africa’s education system.
