Basic Education results show that the failing educational system is stuck in a rut

South Africa’s Basic Education system, with its lowered standards, is too inadequate to properly prepare learners for training after school and that puts a damper on the 2017 matric results that have just been announced, says adv Anton Alberts, FF Plus chairperson, and Dr Wynand Boshoff, FF Plus spokesperson on Basic Education.

Adv Alberts and Dr Boshoff would like to congratulate the successful learners on their results on behalf of the FF Plus and they urge those learners that did not succeed not to give up hope, but to do everything in their power to pass the matric exam.

According to adv Alberts and Dr Boshoff, there are three gaps in the system that are particularly disadvantageous to learners at present. They are:

The Higher Education system is also failing Afrikaans-speaking matriculants, particularly from the Northern and Western Cape provinces, all the more. Instead of expanding Higher Education to include instruction in other indigenous languages, misdirected attempts at redress have seen Afrikaans being replaced by English.

• In 2011, Boshoff obtained a PhD in Curriculum Studies and Instructional Design.
