Nhlanhla Lux Says SA Education Is Useless, It Teaches Low-End Management

People in South Africa are debating the present state of affairs, and they're coming up with creative solutions to the country's current problems. One of the concerns of South Africans is the prevalence of unlawful activity in several areas. Illegal immigration, illegal mining, illegal trading, and other difficulties have plagued the South African government for some time now, yet they have proved to be a difficult problem to solve. 

Mr Nhlanhla Lux, on the other hand, has shared his thoughts on the educational system in South Africa. An interview with ENCA News correspondents entitled "Some blame lack of youth inclusion in government for old ideas, bad implementation" was the venue where he made the remark. 

As part of his address, Nhlanhla Lux stated that the South African school system is a waste of time because he doesn't want a child who knows how to identify an insect, but a youngster who can control the country's economy. 

Although South Africa's economy is built on mining and agriculture, Lux argued that students in other countries like Germany are taught how to mine and manage minerals. This isn't the case in South Africa. Because we don't have a framework in place to train the next generation of mining managers, Nhlanhla Lux explained, we'll be relying on outside contractors to do our work indefinitely.
