Education can only be as good as the educators. In SA a large number of good educators were pushed out of the system to make way for previously disadvantaged educators with below level qualifications. If the educators were left in place the problem would have been sorted by now with more educated/skilled workers and black educators with the neccesary skills. A short term vision did not solve the problem but only made it more difficult to solve now. I am not blaming the educators because they did their best. However, the politicians only thought of how to get themselves elected again without really looking at long term solutions. This is unfortunately the outcome of people who only think of themselves and not their neighbors. There is no kwik fix in this world.

The level of education has dropped to accomodate those who have pubic hair on their heads.
