Kate-Lyn's Tut group's insight:

Sarah- Should students know baout politics? This article discusses how students were given a speech about plitics at a local school. I think that this is a very interesting story that deal with education and politics and deal witht the veiw tht should student know and be involved in political matters. I think looking at whether South Africa should impliment this in schools would be an interesting take upon politics.

Louise- this could be intergrated in to a piece of how students and grahamstown members ccan keep the campus and town safe. this piece showed that there is deviant behaviour all over the world

Kate-Lyn - I get your point. But I am not sure how helpful this is. How valid is a comparison between an American and South African uni? We all know there is crime everywhere.

DA proposes grant changes

DA proposes grant changes | Student Politics | Scoop.it
The DA has proposed measures to ensure child grants are not abused, as part of their green paper on poverty relief.
Kate-Lyn's Tut group's insight:

The DA is suggesting ideas of dealing with the abuse/possible misuse of child grants. They are proposing that figures like social workers and/or teachers should be considered to be allowed to be incharge of childs grants, in cases where a child is found not to be attending school or not well kept. In fact a child could potentially receive bonuses if she/he completes Matric.

Kate-Lyn - Meep. This is by SAPA. Me smells churnalism. I am sure you could have something more engaged with the proposal. How would you use this article in your writing? Perhaps looking if such measures would work locally. ALSO, this is not student politics.

Kate-Lyn's Tut group's insight:

Here is  a story on wildlife coservation and study of elephants in Sout Africa. This can be an interesting topic to deal with through political influences upon the conservation of wildlife and what implications this holds for both elephants and other wildlife, and what it holds for the politics of South Africa and soiciety's view upon  this issue of animal conservation.- Sarah

Battle for SRC control
The New Age Online
The fiercely contested Student Representative Council (SRC) elections at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth takes place tomorrow.
Kate-Lyn's Tut group's insight:

Makungu- This is an intersting article to look at, to see the politics of other universities within their SRC. something interesting is how DASO at NMMU is the leading party and looking at the number of people who attended the DASO meeting here at Rhodes the outcome differs one could ask what DASO at NMMU does that DASO here at Rhodes doesnt do.

Kate-Lyn - this is an interesting and relevant article. Although I am not sure I can trust a news source that does not properly capitalise DASO.

DASO seminar draws small crowd, criticism

Kate-Lyn's Tut group's insight:

Kellan- So I was thinking that if we focussed on student politics on campus then the natural place to start would be student apathy- or perceived apathy- especially with regards to the upcoming elections. Why are Rhodents so apolitical when the student political movement started here? What impact might this have on local politics and life in general?

Interesting and relevant to us. These interviewees make some statements without backing them up with evidence. Just how many is "nearly no Rhodes students"? That would be interesting to follow up on.
