Video: Jay Naidoo Outspoken on Education at Daily Maverick's The Gathering

Fighting for JusticeJay Naidoo, author of Fighting for Justice, spoke at the Daily Maverick‘s annual conference, The Gathering, in Johannesburg.

Naidoo, a former trade unionist and cabinet minister, spoke about the school system in South Africa, saying the country should import Maths and Science teachers, if necessary, and adding that principals should not be allowed to join trade unions, as they are “part of management”.

Furthermore, Naidoo insisted: “Any teacher who has any relationship, even consensual, with a pupil should be fired, and should be criminally prosecuted and put on a public register of sexual offenders!”

He also touched on South Africa’s handling of its assets, and the economy, asking: “How can we use our budget to build accountability?”
