Listen to the full discussion with Dr Mamphela Ramphele, SPARK Schools' Stacey Brewer, Stadio's Samara Totaram and Investec's Marinella Buscaglia.
As a nation, we currently spend a relatively large proportion of our budget and GDP on education and yet we rank bottom of the world according to various competitiveness reports.
Stacey Brewer, Co-Founder and CEO of SPARK Schools
The crisis that we face in education in South Africa, is the crisis of what it means to be human.
Dr Mamphela Ramphele, Co-Founder of ReimagineSA, Co-President of the Club of Rome and patron of Leap Science and Maths Schools
This is very much a case where the public sector, the private sector, the investment community and anybody who can and wants to make a difference, needs to come together and pool resources and help promote the education sector.
Samara Totaram, CFO of Stadio
We cannot afford to stop fighting for what is better and for a better education system that is constantly evolving and preparing our children for the future.
Marinella Buscaglia, Head of CIB Coverage at Investec Bank SA
