The state of education in SA: Dr. Mamphela Ramphele

The former Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Cape Town and Academic Dr. Mamphela Ramphele says as we are embarking on a new school year, now is an opportune time to ask some difficult questions about whether we are doing enough to give our country’s children the education they deserve. Dr. Ramphele says it has been clear for decades that our education sector is in crisis, with all too many children struggling to complete schooling that prepares them for the modern world, yet we must ask whether the solutions proposed for this challenge address what really ails our school system.

To talk to us on this issue and the state of our education in the country, Dr. Rampheleis is live from Cape Town via Skype.
