Inquiry won't benefit children: iLIVE
As threatened by President Jacob Zuma, the consequences for those responsible for the delay in textbook delivery in Limpopo have already been set in motion ("Third textbook inquiry", yesterday).
The consequences, though, are not those to which he refers. Without books, children struggle to learn, their self-esteem will not grow and their lives are essentially stalled before they have begun.
Without skills, there will be no jobs available - and in case the government missed the point, skills development begins at school, with books.
