Day in the Life of a Highschool Resident

The current situation has become almost unbearable. South African society is filled with crime, corruption and extreme violence. The schooling system is falling to pieces as the new government is unable to govern. One must realise that this nation is led by an organization that has never governed a country before. Since freedom was achieved in 1994, billions of dollars are unaccounted for. Schools have become the breeding ground for criminals, and there are constant racial conflicts there. Being a girl places one at constant risk of being raped; being a boy might even be worse, as you are at the mercy of gangs that control the schools.
