This research study will focus on, in the main, the management of the finances of the 500 ordinary public schools.

The process of budget allocation by a Provincial Education Department to schools in a particular education district involves drawing the Resource Targeting List of schools, which lists all schools in that province, sorted by the level of poverty prevalent in the community surrounding the school based on Statistics South Africa (StatsSA) Census data. Table 1 indicates the Norms and Standards budget allocation made by the Provincial Education Department to schools in the Pinetown Education District.

In addition to the budget allocations (norms and standards) received from the provincial education department, schools also generate additional funds by levying school fees. Table 2 below indicates the school fees levied by fee-charging schools in the Pinetown Education District during the 2008 financial year, which is from 01 January 2008 to 31 December 2008. The fees indicated in table 2 represent the actual school fees collected during the review period – the average collection rate was recorded at +/- 35%, that is a bad debt factor of +/- 65% (most schools wrote off on average 65% of the school fees as bad), however the ex-Model C schools, which charge between R10, 000.00 to R20, 000.00 per learner per annum, reported (on average) a 90% collection rate.

Policies and procedures

According to the DoE: Self-Managing Schools (2000; 7), the South African Schools Act provides the basis for a system, which devolves much more power to schools. At the heart of the South African Schools Act is the principle that each school is on a path to self-management – if it is not already there. The intention of the State to make schools self-reliant is reinforced since “central to the new education system (is) that the South African Schools Act gives every school the status of juristic person” DoE: Self-Managing Schools (2000; 9). This implies that the assets acquired by the school become the property of the school and the school, as a legal personality, is responsible for the liabilities of the school.

According to the South African Schools Act, Section 15 [Status of Public Schools]:

Jeffrey Reply
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?
