We are being destroyed indirectly but the systems in education

22 April 2014, 10:13

It is a dream of every African child to be a university student, get a degree and a job that pays well so that they will have a better living. However the sad reality is that this is less like to happen simple because the current system does not allow this to happen. We can celebrate today that more students are accessing the universities as compared to the past but practically the problem is no longer access.

I will focus to where I am, a vast majority of students are poor and can not even afford a registration fee, if they so happen to afford it they are not going to get NSFAS, and if they strike they will be arrested and charged, In other ways the current systems in our institution is silencing us. If you are a new student with no funding at the end of the year you will be owing the university approximately R25 000 or more and unless you pay half of this amount you can not be readmitted to do your second year, thus you will be forced to go home with your first year. Clearly this is a system of undermining black students and pulling South Africa backwards.

Basically this is setting up young black South Africans for failure, but we can not talk about these issues because everyone is protecting oneself. Many students are owing universities and are being handed over to credit bureau's, imagine being 18 years and owing R30 000 that you can never be able to pay because the university excluded you financially for failing to pay these funds something they did know the time they admitted you. I do not think they care, they are only trying their best to kill the future of our young people.

The student leadership has become so weak that its even failing to see the crisis we are currently facing, they have turned out to be celebrities rather than leaders and alcoholics who are in a looting spree.

After all the education system is also a contributing factor in an ongoing class struggle, ask yourself the question why there are private school that offer a better education as opposed to public schools.

If we are serious of turning South Africa into a equal country we must be not afraid to speak of issues and be faithful to ourselves, we must not mislead our people. Lastly we must take education serious
