The government of the African National Congress indeed serves and values, the freedom and democracy of its people and treasure the empowering and educative role of ideas and information, and has committed itself to provide for the cultural, educational, social and economic and technological development of the people through quality education.
We are committed to improve the education system, given the historical realities of fragmented unequal and undemocratic nature of education system under apartheid. The resultant effects of that being the collapse of education culture in large parts of the country, troubled institutions of learning and teaching, challenged conditions of employment with teachers receiving uncompetitive salaries, which have affected their morale, where real work of knowledge production was distorted with curriculum content irrelevant to the creation of brain power required for maximum development and growth of our country.
