LETTER: Student demands are relevant

2016-03-10 06:00

It’s time for the government to listen to the university students.

If the state is able to help unemployed and poor people by giving them RDP houses and social grants, why is it difficult to assist our future leaders, who are hungry for education?

The country should invest more in our future entrepreneurs, scientists, doctors, researchers and lawyers, than anything else.

The government is turning a blind eye to the youth who put education first, but it is providing young mums with child support grants.

Education should be a priority in the country because we live in a fast developing world that needs our youth to be educated.

Education is the key to success.

What the university students are fighting for makes sense.

How do we expect our youth not to be involved in crime when education is not a priority? The government must wake up and smell the coffee.
