Education needs African approach

INFORMED, not politically driven, reform in education is not unique to South Africa. It occurs everywhere.

Education needs change because it does not produce minds that produce manufacturers. Africans, especially black Africans, must produce products and services that are purely African .

Most pupils are "educated" to seek entry to systems that will not free us from Euro-Asian-American economic dependence. Our education does not teach the youth to face daily life challenges.
