|Education crisis should get government’s full attention in 2012|
The milestone celebrations of the ANC as an organisation needs to be applauded.
Although the 8 January speech by President Zuma proved to be somewhat disappointing, we are heartened by the fact that so much emphasis has been placed on the country’s education crisis. Our education and training system should indeed be the cornerstone of all efforts to radically transform South Africa and build a truly non-racial, non-sexist, democratic, united and prosperous society.
UASA had hoped that Zuma would make some strong and clear points in respect of other serious issues concerning South African workers, including job creation, economic reform, the European debt crisis, and the future of the mining industry in terms of the Nationalisation debate.
