South Africa’s education system has been criticized by many as the Department of Education tried numerous times to adopt educational models from International countries. In last year’s budget speech on 25 February 2015 Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene’s stated that Over R640-billion will be allocated to basic education during the next three
years. In addition to that it is reported that Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa said that the R17-billion project to introduce tablets to government schools in Gauteng will ultimately boost the country’s economy. The Gauteng education department hoped to roll the project out to all Gauteng township and rural schools by the end of the 2017/2018 financial year at an estimated cost of R17 billion.
