Equal education is a basic right

2014-09-07 15:01

There must be no segregation in education. All children must receive free primary and secondary education from the state.

Standards of education must be the same for all children, irrespective of race, home language or economic status. Education must be designed to develop citizens imbued with a love for their people, their country and humanity.

There must be equal opportunities for all to receive higher education and specialised technical training. However, to correct the legacy of colonialism, priority must be given to the training of historically disadvantaged specialists in every field.

The state must organise a campaign among the masses for the elimination of adult illiteracy. All teachers must be guaranteed decent standards of living and must be enabled to attain the highest qualifications.

Education is a human right and every child must get a quality education.
