Freedom Day 2021: quality education essential to attaining true freedom and #TheFutureWeWant

JOBURG – The education policies of the past have been abolished, but the bimodal schooling system they created, where the privileged attend well-functioning schools, while the disadvantaged continue to receive sub-par education, remains.
