Mmusi Maimane launches petition to end the 30% pass mark, says it will hurt South Africa's economy
In more news about the seasoned politician, Briefly News wrote about Mmusi Maimane, the founder and leader of One South Africa Movement who is taking his advocacy for the improvement of the South African educational system to greater heights.
Maimane and his organisation have launched a petition to ask the Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga to consider increasing the pass mark which currently sits at 30% for some school subjects.
In the petition posted on Change.org, Maimane says the low pass mark is harmful to pupils and the future of the educational system. Maimane went on to say the 30% mark will eventually have a negative impact on the country's economy.
