Education should encourage young people to see beyond their current circumstances!

“My deepest desire is to see public schools in townships and villages having the same standard and quality as private schools. Education should encourage young people to see beyond their current circumstances.
“Sadly, the unemployment rate among youth increased from 32.7% to 36.1% between 2008 and 2015 according to the latest Stats SA report. Youth unemployment for me is caused by two things: lack of a holistic education that imparts skills and knowledge not just about the required qualification but also understanding social relations. Unemployment is also caused by the lack of creativity amongst young people. This lack of creativity is caused by the lack of empowerment from our sources of influence.
“Education for me does not begin in the classroom nor does it end there, critical education is one that transcends beyond the classroom and allows one to use the theories and principles learned for practical life situations unlimited to the work environment.”
“The unemployment problem can thus be improved by providing students with a holistic education that helps them to not limit their activity to what they qualify to do or aspire to become, professionally: – Yanda Tamsanqeleka Bango.
