The Poverty Of South Africa’s Education System

October 16, 2012
Comments off

I was educated in this country, and so I am a product of this education system. I am a product of a system that allows for failure and is undoubtedly mediocre in nature. It is shocking – to say the least – to learn that children in grade seven have an inability to construct sentences and articulate ideas coherently. Worse still is the knowledge that this pandemic is occurring at university level as well. Yes, university students lack writing skills. Working at the university gives me access to writing material by students and I have also heard comments made by markers and lecturers. It is on this basis that I make the statements that I do.
