Jonathan Jansen, head of the University of the Free State, in a recent interview for The Daily Maverick, cites Zimbabwe as a model for SA’s schooling system.

“It has placed a huge premium on education. It has a very strong educational culture.

And the advantage of this is that they were strongly bedded cultures that reinforce the importance of education.”
