Maths and science graduates might undergo compulsory community service soon

The government has drafted a proposal which would make it compulsory for maths and science graduates to undergo community service.

The graduates would need to teach these particular subjects at schools in an effort to improve the quality of teachers at local schools. The graduates will be drafted from state-funded universities into a compulsory period of teaching following their graduation.

We want to encourage community service.

Nkosana Dolopi, Deputy General Secretary at Sadtu

We will be engaging as a country as to how then do we deploy some of these students encouraging them to put back into the communities.

Nkosana Dolopi, Deputy General Secretary at Sadtu

Remember they are assisted all these years by the state through our taxes to go through the education system. After doing all that it makes sense that there could be a consideration as to how they would give back to the community.
