IT WAS interesting to read "SA is still the class dunce" (yesterday), in which they come to the conclusion that pupils are taught to memorise information instead of understand what they are taught.

The ANC wants an illiterate population so people can be manipulated and believe everything they are told without questioning the information. That is one of the reasons our education system is so bad. Intelligent, thinking people might query what they are told. -
