Community activist Nomalanga Mkhize, the coordinator of the Save Our Schools initiative in Grahamstown, said there was a disconnect between unions and government that crippled decision-making at schools. While unity is declared at the top levels of union and education structures, local-level and district-level education is driven by divided loyalties and a poor understanding of processes and procedures. Mkhize has observed elements of distrust and resentment among teachers towards communities and parents who want to be involved in their children’s schools. She suggested that this mindset was rooted in the power of union officials at the local and micro levels. Follow the Link: No easy solution to union’s role
