Social media user, @African_Spring, shared a controversial tweet regarding the standard of education in the country and tweeps echoed her sentiments.
The tweet in question highlighted the 50% pass mark under the apartheid government whereas the bar has been set much lower today.
Many agreed and criticised the policies as well, with user, @Sekwekwene1, stating the policy doesn’t affect politicians as their children are sent to white schools.
Another tweep, @SonjaZA4me, questioned why our government feels the need to implement policies which failed in other countries.
A concerning response was shared by user, @mullicar, who allegedly taught a class of B. Ed graduates who were unable to spell, read or write constructively.
Briefly.co.za gathered that some of the comments made were from various role players, including teachers.
User, @andiswankwents2, questioned why classrooms are so overcrowded currently. It is alleged that even teachers unions aren’t receiving acceptable feedback when issues are raised.
