ANCYL slates pri­vate schools

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

THE ANC Youth League yes­ter­day ex­pressed con­cern about the sep­a­rated ed­u­ca­tion sys­tems, say­ing pri­vate schools were given pref­er­en­tial treat­ment. Spokesper­son Mlondi Mkhize said pri­vate schools con­tin­ued to get a bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion when com­pared to the rest of the coun­try. “We wish to reg­is­ter our con­cern with the man­ner in which pref­er­en­tial treat­ment is given to pri­vate schools,” he said. “Pri­vate schools con­tinue to get a far bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion if com­pared to the rest of the na­tion. If that isn’t enough, their re­sults are given to them ahead of other pupils.” Mkhize said the gov­ern­ment must curb the un­de­sir­able out­comes of the sys­tem. “This act must stop, oth­er­wise it seeks to in­cul­cate the no­tion that pri­vate ser­vices are bet­ter then pub­lic ser­vices. It af­firms the cen­tral­ity of money in or­der to get a bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion. We call on our gov­ern­ment to stop this prac­tice be­fore it gets worse.” – ANA
