President Jacob Zuma has urged parents to be more involved in the education of their children instead of relying on teachers so much.
Delivering a lecture in Sasolburg in honour of John Dube, the African National Congress’s first president, Zuma argued that poor education is one of the causes of moral decay and slow economic growth.
"We, in our own homes, we no longer educate our kids … parents are not doing it. Parents are leaving it all to the teachers. That’s wrong," he explained.
