The school inspector is assigned to the grade 4 class in one of the local schools.

He is introduced to the class by the teacher. She says to the
show the inspector just how clever you are by allowing him to ask you a question".

The inspector reasons that normally class starts with religious
instruction, so he will ask a biblical question.

He asks :"Class, who broke down the walls of Jericho?"
For a full minute there is absolute silence.

The children all just stare at him blankly. Eventually, Sipho raises
his hand. The inspector excitedly points to him. Sipho
stands up and replies:" Sir, I do not know who broke down the walls of
Jericho, but I can assure you it wasn't me".

Of course the inspector is shocked by the answer and looks at the
teacher for an explanation. Realizing that he is perturbed, the
teacher says:

"Well, I've known Sipho since the beginning of the year, and I
believe that if he says that he didn't do it, then he didnt do it

The inspector is even more shocked at this and storms down to the
principal's office and tells him what happened, to which the
principal replies : I don't know the boy, but i socialize every now
and then with his teacher, and i believe her. If she feels that the
boy is innocent, then he must be innocent".

The inspector can't believe what he is hearing. He grabs the phone
on the principal's desk and in a rage dials the Minister of
Education's telephone number and rattles the entire occurrence to
him and asks him what he thinks of the education standard in S.A.

The Minister sighs heavily and replies: "I don't know the boy, the
teacher nor the principal, but just get three qoutes and have the
damn wall fixed!!"

"Live for today, because what you do today is what you use to make your future"
