Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga, will announce a new education curriculum that will replace the widely criticised Outcomes-Based Education (OBE) system.

The new curriculum, to be known as ‘Schooling 2025’, comes after years of criticism by teachers and education experts, who blamed the poor quality of education on the OBE, which was introduced by the then minister, Kader Asmal in 1998. .
Motshekga’s advisor and spokesperson, Panyaza Lesufi, confirmed that a decision on OBE will be made, but refused to expand on what will replace it.
