"Key to fighting poverty is education" Blade Nzimande said. I do agree with the phrase mentioned above. As life is all about learning and gaining knowledge through books, and experiences in our daily lives. If we are not exposed to education, we would not be learning as much to achieve what we actually can.
With the wide spread and quality education provided, it means more rapid economic, social and cultural development for society. Education is a need for economic growth.
Without education, it results in unemployment, social upheaval, instability and poverty that is taking place.
For this particular article, it would be referring to South Africa where white paper for post school education is proposed as a whole. Aim is to make sure the focus is on higher education and training. The post school system will also be an aid to response to the needs of individual citizens and employers.
This whole white paper, post school education is emphasised on workplace learning, and prepare workers for the labour market and economic self-sufficiency.
With this implemented, it would help in the countries economical growth as well as alleviating the country's issue on poverty where there is equal opportunties for all.
