Three-tier education system reinforces 'systemic inequality' - Prof Jansen

The proposed three-tier structure to South Africa's education system wouldn't adequately assess talent alongside access to opportunities, says University of the Free State rector Prof Jonathan Jansen.

702's Azania Mosaka on Monday spoke to the renowned education policy expert about his ideas on the issue.

Listen to the interview below:

You wouldn't be assessing my capability, you would be testing a kid who had a fairly disadvantageous education in a poor environment.

Prof Jonanthan Jansen, UFS rector

You have to realise that this is not Germany, this is not North America, this is post-apartheid South Africa.

Prof Jonanthan Jansen, UFS rector

How do you know that when you make those decisions it is based on a real assessment of the talent as opposed to the fact that they were taught poorly?

Prof Jonanthan Jansen, UFS rector

This is precisely what Verwoerd wanted. That the black people work with their hands and the white people work with their heads.
