'X' not mark of learning: iLIVE
Phil Evans ("Education not ANC priority", Letters, June 29) is wrong to say a well-educated population would not vote ANC.
Whites were and are well-educated, yet they would not see what the apartheid regime was doing in the short or longer term.
Zimbabwe has the best education system in Southern Africa, but it also has President Robert Mugabe.
The most educated nation in Europe in the 1930s was Germany, where the Nazi party was voted into power.
Better education would not convince people in South Africa that the ANC has failed to stand by them throughout 100 years of liberation struggle, or that some unknown educated people did in fact stand by them.
