Mmusi Maimane ruffled a few feathers after he posted a series of tweets which stated that the pass rate should not be 30%.
The leader and founder of One South Africa Movement has always been an advocate for the improvement of the South African educational system. The former Democratic Alliance leader also headed to social media to include his followers in his advocacy and issued a poll asking them if Life Orientation should be replaced with a new subject.
Mmusi took to Twitter to send a message to Angie Motshekga. He tweeted this, “ The basic education minister Angie Motshekga must go.”
South Africans completely agreed with him. Ok numerous different occasions, people complained about Angie Motshekga and her work ethic.
The entire syllabus must go and be replaced by a world class curriculum. Performance of the department can be measured against international recognised best practices & then the ANC can stop lowering the education bar to suit the required annual pass rate.
Maimane is an avid advocate for the betterment of South Africa's education system and he just recently launched a petition to end the 30% pass mark for grade 12 learners. Maimane says the petition has now garnered more than 10 000 signatures so far.
@Camza left this comment on the tweet, “I agree. Year after year schools don't all get books and come end of the year, she's all smiles shaming provinces that performed less , forgetting they never got books, classes under trees and some schools, just no teachers. Sies on her.”
@noeticGAZE left this comment, “Why does it always seem that ANC pensioners can't see life beyond state employment? She's hardly adding any value to the dept. Hasn't she made enough money to retire comfortably as civil servants are better remunerated than their private counterparts.”
