Education First?

I wonder what the UN were thinking about when they appointed President Zuma to Ban Ki-moon’s Education First initiative. see here.

What confounds me is that SA’s record in education, even in Africa, is lamentable.  So what is to be gained by this new appointment?  Perhaps they hope it will be educational, for someone.

In any event, we don’t wish to sound churlish, so, congratulations Mr President, let us hope we all benefit from your involvement.
