A count down has begun to the much anticipated 2015 Matric results.
Yes, it’s that time of twiddling fingers and anxiety for our matriculants.
The minister of Basic Education Mme Angela Motshekga will release the results and honour those made strides, in Johannesburg tonight, where almost 800 000 learners sat for their year-end exams nationally.
To make matters worse, Umalusi-quality assurer- have already indicated the results have dropped significantly as opposed to last year.
Without excuse Maths, Science and Accounting are some of the subjects that contributed to this dismal performance.
A civic organisation SANCO has repeatedly called to stop publishing matric results in newspapers as it affects the matriculants physchologically.What difference will it make it though, if you may ask?
The department of Social Development under minister Bathabile Dlamini, have dedicated a special center for children and parents in distress.
This suggests our education system is also in distress, thus it needs an urgent attention, if not, next year we shall see the same ugly head rearing again, please!
Please, don’t get me started on the controversial selling of teachers/principals posts because this is a matter for another day.
