Based on the findings and the literature the following is recommended:

Review of the allocation of additional functions to school governing bodies

The school governing body may apply for the allocation of additional functions or the provincial Head of Department may allocate additional functions to school governing bodies based on the capacity of the school governing body [SASA (1996; 21 (1))]. Since a moratorium on the allocation of additional functions has been in place since March 2005, school governing bodies which have developed capacity over the last four and a half years have been denied the opportunity to apply and have forgone the benefits which come with these allocated functions. It is therefore recommended that:

  • the moratorium be lifted
  • the Head of Department invoke his discretionary powers and allocate additional functions to schools whose governing bodies display capacity
  • the questionnaire (cf table 3) be modified from a YES/NO type response to an evidence based application
  • the questionnaire be shortened to exclude irrelevant information
  • the process of approval (cf figure 2) be shortened by cutting out irrelevant authorisation personnel thereby speeding up the process

The HOD may, on reasonable grounds, withdraw a function of a school governing body [SASA (1996; 22 (1))]. In my capacity as both Master Trainer for School Financial Management and as a Superintendent of Education, I have come across many Section 21 schools whose SGBs lack capacity to carry out their allocated functions. There are also many schools, which as a result of this incapacity, have been defrauded of hundreds of thousands of rand. The Pinetown Education District is aware of these cases and yet research has shown that no school in the district has had its allocated functions withdrawn. It is further recommended that:

  • the capacity of Section 21 schools’ governing bodies be reviewed regularly (based on reports submitted to the Education Districts)
  • the Education Districts or the Provincial Education Department conduct random sampling of other “non errant” Section 21 schools’ governing bodies for general review.

Drafting of a generic school finance policy

Clarke (2008; 291) states that one of the main purposes of the schools’ finance policy is to put in place a system of controls (checks and balances) to ensure that the schools’ finances are safeguarded and correctly managed. Blandford in Mestry (2006; 35) concurs: “The formulation of rules and regulations for the handling of money … is necessary.” Based on the literature reviewed in chapter three an example of the rules and regulations for the management of cash could be: (i) indicate the person/s responsible for collecting the cash; (ii) all monies received must be receipted; (iii) monies received should be banked daily; (iv) if monies cannot be banked provision must be made for safe storage; (v) proper accounting records (including source documents) must be maintained to record these transactions; (vi) audit trails should be used to verify and validate each and every transaction

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
