Judges are among our most powerful public officials. They are invested with unparalled cases, lifetime tender to insulate them from influence and pressure. But what happens to them when they wield their power irresponsibly and twist the law they are sworn to uphold?
Usually, not that much. Judges are monitored in most cases, by fellow judges who are reluctant to penalize one of their own. Of course, most judges deserve the respect paid to them. But, as our investigation reveals, a disturbing number do not.
Proper investigation can show all.
Adding to the education experience
In all our work we ask, “What can we add to the education experience.” It is in the soft options associated with building such as teacher training. This is where we are adding value. We want quality education that enables students to develop skills. That means they can make a meaningful contribution to their community and society once thy have left school. We ensure that they are as employable as possible. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Our students are yet to do the hands-on exposure to technology skills. For many, it is going to play a critical role in their lives.
The key to having the ability to learn and make meaningful contributions is having a sense of self-respect and self-worth. Children go to school to learn, but modern day education wants to focus on increasing the sense of self-confidence that will enable them to use what they learned effectively.
