The lack of qualified Mathematics and Science teachers led to a cycle of inadequate instruction in these subjects which churned out teachers that were less qualified than their predecessors. Some areas did not have high schools thereby not offering pupils an opportunity to progress beyond 9 years of learning; in farm schools, even less. It was therefore every black parent’s dream for their children to move beyond the basic education offered in black only schools to the broader education offered to other racial groups. The school I was attending had been a coloured school, hence all learning was still in English. But with the establishment of Bantustans and Umzimkhulu declared to be in the Transkei, therefore outside the borders of South Africa proper, the schools was declared outside the bounds of South African state funding; dropping the level to that of a black school.

A Broad Look on Education System in Indonesia From the first Hindu “schools” to today’s modern national and international schools, schools in Indonesia had always existed to guide and smarten those deemed worthy to receive it. However, throughout most of its history, education is somewhat restricted towards only a few belligerents; low to medium literacy rates in Indonesia is common, before the advent of Taman Siswa and similar education institutions in 1922. Education in Indonesia starts as Karsyan “schools” in the early Hindu-Buddhism kingdoms, which is a school that is usually in the deep countryside.

Many of these schools draw their resources from local societies, with models that are replicable on a larger scale. Non - formal schooling: Non- formal schooling has played a vital role in providing education to the poorest children and adults, especially in rural areas.
