The power of the Power of Attorney and mental healthThe general perception is that a power of attorney provides for a person to be appointed to sign documentation on your behalf or to manage your affairs when you are unable to do so yourself. Many therefore signs a power of attorney, where they are concerned that they will be unable to make decisions in future, due to failing mental health. Power of Attorneys are also widely used to manage affairs of persons with failing mental health. The important question here is whether the Power of attorney has power beyond mental illness? 6 Apr 2021 Read more

Defining what we mean by 'quality' in education is difficult and what one person thinks is essential to good quality provision may not be as important to another. Consider, for example, 'traditional' versus 'cutting-edge', or 'academic' versus 'work-oriented'. And while most of us feel that we will recognise good or poor quality 'when we see it' the fact is that whether we are students, parents, academics, employers or regulators we all need something firmer than a vague sense of what quality is when we're facing a decision about a programme or an institution. 9 Jun 2011 Read more

The recent release of the matric results signalled the start of the 2011 academic year in South Africa. The newspapers contain pictures of long queues of students trying, mostly unsuccessfully, to gain entry into 'select' universities in Johannesburg and elsewhere. As pleased as we may be that so many students have achieved a university pass, the queues point to several crucial questions about our schooling system. Why are so many students so determined to gain access only to traditional university study? Given the sad truth that the majority of students entering university qualifications do not leave with a degree raises the question of whether and why these students are not aware of alternative courses of study? Are there not other places or courses from which students could obtain a quality education? 28 Jan 2011 Read more
