Education System Slammed for Failing the Youth

Rhodes University vice-chancellor, Dr Saleem Badat, says that South Africa’s education system is failing the country’s youth

Rhodes University vice-chancellor, Dr Saleem Badat, says that South Africa’s education system is failing the country’s youth.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony for the Eastern Cape Student Sponsorship Programme at Selborne College in East London, Dr Badat, called the state of education in the country a ‘tragedy’.

Badat said thousands of South African children would never reach their potential because of the ‘appalling’ state of education, adding that only a quarter of pupils that begin Grade 1 complete Grade 12 and make it to university - this despite the country spending R130 billion a year on education.
