Nzimande lashes at academics criticizing SA’s education system

Nzimande was speaking during the launch of the University of KwaZulu-Natal's Transformation Charter at the Westville Campus last night. Nzimande says while universities have a right to criticise, they also have a responsibility to come up with solutions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I've run out of patience really for university professors who write every week criticising the schooling system, but not saying a word about how your university that you are heading is going to be addressing that. That is not being constructive. That is not a vice chancellor we need in South Africa today. I am very sorry," said Nzimande.

 

 

Nzimande said he plans to set up a national oversight committee to speed up transformation of universities. The committee will conduct annual audits on transformation activities within universities, report suppression of change and promote good practices. The committee was recommended by the 2008 Soudien Committee Report, after it found lack of transformation and evidence of racism.

"We aim to work closely with the institutions to achieve the transformation goals as set out in the White Paper."

He said he will soon announce the chairperson and members of the committee. But he explained this will not be a policing exercise of universities.

“We aim to work closely with the institutions to achieve the transformation goals as set out in the White Paper, the old and the new one that is coming. The reality is that incidents such as the Reitz residence saga which led to the investigation of the sector and the release of the Soudien Report; the death of a student at North West University during the orientation period, reported initiation practices at some Wits residence, are part of the indication that we must escalate our efforts to transform the university system,” Nzimande added.


He commended the University of KwaZulu-Natal for its leading role in ensuring transformation. Black graduates have gone up from 45% in 2004, to 59% in 2012. Female graduates are at 62% this year, compared to 56% in 2004. About 33% of the academic leadership is female, while there were none in 2004. About half of the academic staff have doctorates.
