Education in economic development: South Africa
Education is a major aspect in every country. In South Africa, it has been praised, encouraged and respected, and this is due to the fact that many of our parents (Black parents) were never allowed access to a decent education system.
Post 1994, almost every parent wanted to see their children in school. Grade 1 is still joy to many parents. However, for some the joy fades as their children move a grade up, and this is because of the challenges in our education system.
This paper highlights some critical statistics concerning the system, issues in the system and provides recommendations that may be possible solutions to this predicament.
Corruption on poverty: Literature review
Despite the fact that the global poverty rate has been halved since 2000, intensified efforts are required to boost the incomes, alleviate the suffering and build the resilience of those individuals still living in extreme poverty, in particular in sub-Saharan Africa. Social protection systems need to be expanded and risks need to be mitigated for disaster-prone countries, which also tend to be the most impoverished. (Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, 2017)
The purpose of this short paper is to raise an argument that corruption plays a major role in preventing the world from achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in this paper I particularly focus on corruption on poverty. This is also the same with the former Millennium Development Goals (MDG) that were never met.
