Compared with most other countries, education in South Africa, gets a large slice of the public pie – around 20% of total state expenditure. It receives the largest share of government spending and therefor needs to be properly accounted for.
Lack of quality teachers, poor functioning of schools, a backlog in infrastructure, absenteeism from both students and teachers and poor delivery of the curriculum are all contributing factors to the challenges faced by the South African education system.
Schools should be run like a business and just as with any business, they require proper accounting and audits to show how their income has been spent. BDO works with a range of private and government funded institutions and thus has the expertise and experience to help your organisation run as efficiently and effectively as possible.
