The Corruption Watch schools campaign started at the beginning of the 2013 academic year. Monitoring of schools was a major focus for us in 2013 - through 2012, from our launch in January up to the beginning of the schools campaign we had received more than 60 reports of possible corruption in schools, mostly involving the embezzlement of funds by principals and administrators, corruption in procurement processes and maladministration by school governing bodies. In this publication we share with you what we learned along the way in terms of those issues. One of our big concerns is the National School Feeding Programme, and it features strongly in our ebook. You'll also learn about the roles of principals and governing bodies, how no-fees schools work, how schools are categorised for government funding, and how procurement in schools should work. At the end we'll give you a set of easy-to-follow tools to guide you in asking the right questions, addressing the right issues, and holding the right people accountable.
