Police should be placed in the classroom as classroom Teachers; and in the office of Child Protection Services as Officers for the Department of Family Services, receiving a medal if children markedly excel; since they are expected to meet quotas in their present positions as law enforcement officers,; whereas, as Teachers and Child Protection personnel, they would not need to score clients to the extent that Police today are accustomed to having to do today and projected to in the future.

Lessons of Nelson Mandela and Apartheid

Apartheid: the Tyranny of Racism Made Law At Home EveryDay

Beach near Cape Town. There has been much talk recently about desegregating racially segregated public facilities. The reality defies the rhetoric. 01 January 1982CapeTown, South Africa

1.  Lesson “It always seems impossible, Until it is done”

2.  Explore the life of Nelson Mandela and the differences between biography and autobiography with these materials for English and Literacy.

The lessons develop critical reading skills, invite shared discussion, and provide the opportunity for pupils to develop their own writing skills.

They also provide ideas for discussing the difference between explicit and implicit points of view, and the differences between first and third person narration.

Nelson Mandela wanted the people in South Africa to be free from apartheid.  He  hated that black South Africans lived in poverty and could not vote in elections. While many others felt that ending apartheid was an impossible challenge, Nelson Mandela did not give up. Mandela spent 27 years of his life in prison. When he was finally released, he helped turn the impossibility of ending apartheid into a reality.

3.Lesson Plan Activity & Task

Tell students that the South African government responded to every attempt to oppose the system of apartheid with increased repression and violence, therefore resistance movements decided to take up arms in the struggle. Students should individually identify a national, state or local problem that they could try to change.

White racism and attempts to assassinate Mandela and Zuma are all explained in my book, from Bob Crew Author of “Mandela: His Life and Legacy for South Africa and The World.” The hardcover version is listed on Amazon here: and on Goodreads here: Also on kindle and in the African bookshops.
