Rebecca Davis, Zille continues to bat for Motshekga against education activists

The article shows how DA leader Helen Zille disagrees with attempts to force the Basic Education Minister to provide basic infrastructure creating an environment for education. Instead she, and Jonathan Jansen, VC of The University of the Free State argue that this is misplaced where quality teaching is absent and this, in the view of Jansen should be related to other routes to economic advancement more lucrative than teaching.. Davis shows that the provision of toilets, buildings etc are not seen as a total answer to the problem of education but that these are a crucial element of what is required for an adequate learning environment.
