The state of South Africa's education system is a sore point for many parents. The conditions of schools and lack of teachers in rural areas especially is a big problem in South Africa. A debate on the matter was held on social media.
A woman took to social media to discuss the poor state of South Africa's education system. She highlighted the fact that the children only had a few physics classes, but were expected to write exams.
Naturally, the children could not pass - they had learned barely anything.
The woman also mentioned the fact that the class average was 22% - this is sadly true in many rural schools.
Fellow South Africans joined in on the conversation and added that the South African Democratic Teachers Union is partly to blame for the state things are in because there are teachers who do not do their jobs but cannot be fired.
@MsXulu - The day Sadtu took over the education of our kids is the day we lost it as a nation. ANC seriously need to fix this mess. It's a not a secret that some teachers don't bother teaching but can not be fired because of Sadtu. Something has got to give.
