There is an ideology known as Afrikanerdom. This is basically what the Afrikaans people refer to their existence. They came up with this core value. Education is the key to a prosperous nation. They linked the growth of this nation to education, and that concept and outlook on life made this country to be recognized by the global market.
Now we as the black people rule the country. We are inheriting an economy which we were not invited to when it was being planned. So the cause in the fall on the rand arises in that simple but fundamental aspect on democracy. The ANC can not bring about change and reconstruction if it does not ascend the countries educational standards.
A few days ago I read an article that pointed the fact that South Africa will be implementing a new education system. I think this change is unnecessary. We can not do that if we have not solved the core problems and loopholes of education in South Africa. Loopholes such as the lack of order and respect in schools. Especially English Medium Schools and Township Schools.
The majority of you may not see the need to fix this simple aspect. But like other countries I believe we should implement a hundred year goal. Where will this country be in the next hundred years?
