The Rule of Law and Separation of Powers. Moving from the history of the creation of the Constitution we focus on its very fundamental role in defining how power is attributed.

It is crucial that learners and educators, school governing bodies and/or their representatives, understand that the Constitution is the supreme law of the country and that nobody is above the law – concepts which may seem obvious but really are not, at least to them. It has been troubling to see how children perceive how power is distributed in South Africa, sometimes painting a picture more akin to an absolutist state than to a democracy.
