SIKONATHI MANTSHANTSHA: An education system that produces incompetent thugs
The incompetence produced by the past 25 years goes beyond youngsters unable to perform to expectation in the workplace
Corroding our education system in democratic SA, from the already poor apartheid Bantu education, was always going to catch up with us in many more ways than we anticipated. Now we are burdened with incompetent snipers and would-be assassins who can’t even do the job properly.
While apartheid trained the majority to construct just enough sentences to beg for a job, and read for enough comprehension to take instructions, outcomes-based education (OBE) has produced even worse results. In more ways than you could imagine. And some are not so bad.
