School Turnaround Foundation is not about ‘improving schools’, but rather to develop “excellent school by design”, where all learners are stretched and supported to be successful, in order to realise their ‘dreams’ beyond schooling.  It means that the organisation does things differently so that the organisation moves beyond the high dropout rate, the mediocre learner outcomes, high unemployment and despair. This is achieved by facilitating deep change on an individual level and system change on an organisational level.
