President Mbeki recently stated that some of the problems in education could not be ascribed to only the lack of experience or the lack of skills of educators. He intimated that in some cases the lack of commitment to the teaching profession may be a primary reason for the poor performance of learners in some schools. This statement clearly signifies the need for the public service to devote attention to this requirement for the improvement of service delivery. The lofty ideals contained in the eight Batho Pele principles seem not to have found its way to the hearts and minds of public officials. Lip service is paid to the requirements for the transformation of public service delivery, but the quality of service, as measured against expectations, illustrates the lack of achieving the set goals.
