South Africa faces numerous challenges. In my opinion, one of the greatest challenges is to improve the availability and quality of education, from pre-primary school level to tertiary education. Education is the key to the improvement of living standards. It can eventually help to alleviate the other great challenge South Africa is facing, namely poverty. Education can empower people. It can expose people to essential and knowledge new to them, to alternative views and teach them to be questioning of outdated practices. Furthermore, people can be taught to understand and respect democracy, ethical values, the value of life and the rights of minorities, women, children and the elderly. Once the burden of poverty has been put aside, and even while it is being done, other facets of social life will start improving.
