"The State of the Education" in Cape Town South Africa

A Documentary by a Student at Cape Town University
On Wednesday, a professor from Cape Town University and a teacher from a high school in Cape Town spoke at Texas State University San Marcos. The high school teacher provided background about the school where she teaches and the professor spoke about some of the projects the university has been doing with the high school. One of the salient issues raised by both instructors had to do with the segregation that continues in most of the schools through discriminatory testing and fees which serve to keep black students out of white schools. White schools since apartheid also continue to maintain what is referred to as their "cultural ethos."

The video below was done by the son of the CTU professor.
