Hope their maths skills are better than their spelling skills... or was it the sign writer's error?
This brings me to a though I have been mulling over for months now... call it a pipe dream if you will but I do think it needs consideration in our country.
What if we could challenge the Government to cut back in luxury spending plus make a 33% cut in salaries of all politicians, the money thus saved must then go into getting all schools up to world class standard. The high school in Seymour in the Eastern Cape must then be brought up to par with those in Santon!
It is shocking to see the state of some rural schools when one thinks that since 1994 the government has had the funds to right the situation, it is criminal that some children still go to school under trees. To blame Apartheid is utter lies... keeping the people uneducated so as to make them reliant on hand outs thus twisting their arm to keep voting your particular party in power at each election is a crime against humanity.
