The Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 2 target aspires to ensure that, by 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling. South Africa's education system experiences a range of problems extending beyond the simple issues of meeting the MDG targets. Poor quality education reinforces major racial inequalities in society and inadequate systems make it difficult for South Africa to deliver on internal infrastructural promises or to achieve competitive levels in a globalised economy. These factors impact negatively on long-term development and internal stability in the country.
