MA­TRIC PASS RATE

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - This Week You’re Saying... -

VERONISE ABRA­HAMS I don’t want to rain on any­one’s pa­rade be­cause some kids do work re­ally hard, BUT the pass per­cent­ages per sub­ject are so low. It’s not dif­fi­cult to pass ma­tric these days – 30% in some sub­jects are not some­thing to be proud of.

NKEZA YAMKELA Con­grat­u­la­tions to un­der­de­vel­oped schools in the lo­ca­tions ... You’ve shown that – even with­out re­sources, more so in the math­e­mat­ics and phys­i­cal sci­ence field – you’re a class above your model C coun­ter­parts!

GIDEON SNYGANS One can't be proud of 30% to pass ma­tric. Well done to those who got 50% and more . . . hard work pays off. ROSEMARIE FOUCHE PETER­SON Con­grat­u­la­tions to you all. Hard work and en­durance is re­warded.

JOHN V LOM­BARDO This is in­cred­i­bly mis­lead­ing. The drop-out rate is far more telling. Also, so many teach­ers in town­ship schools barely show up for class and ac­tu­ally teach.

RONELLE JOSEPH Good work to all teach­ers and par­ents for giv­ing your sup­port to these pupils.

SINOTHANDO YENA Nel­son Man­dela Bay prob­a­bly has bet­ter re­sources in most schools. Please, the fo­cus must be on ru­ral schools.
