Education Breaks Inequality, Poverty – Marcus

Quality public education is necessary to address the problems of inequality and poverty in South Africa, argues Reserve Bank governor

South African Reserve Bank governor, Gill Marcus, believes quality public education is necessary to address the problems of inequality and poverty.

Marcus points out that, "Public education of the highest standard for all children is critical for democracy to flourish, and was integral to the liberation struggle, as lack of education is the greatest exclusion there can be."

Speaking at a Ruth First Memorial Trust evening at the Jeppe High School for Girls, Marcus praised the trust and the school for setting an example of how communities could provide education for all, rather than just a privileged few.
