The 1976 uprising started in Soweto, South Africa because of poor quality education provided by the apartheid (white govt). The black youth of the day took to the streets and started a violent uprising against the goverment of the day.
 
Move on to 2012, 18 years after the black ANC led Goverment came to power:
 
The current school year is halfway done, yet many schools are still without textbooks. Amidst all of this it was discovered that the printers who have the printing tenders have dumped the books at secret places in the bush and rivers. This is much cheaper then actually delivering them.
 
Some schools have received books in the wrong languages. A school for the blind has received normal books in stead of Braille.
 
Many goverment schools are still under a tree, or has no roof, or windows etc etc.
 
The pass rate in some schools are about 40% and lower.
 
The worst is nothing is done to the officials running the show.
 
Viva ANC !!!!
 
They have created 18 age groups of under skilled, uneducated slave labourers for us to exploit. Viva !!!!

Consider:
 
Crushing property taxes of which 55-65 % goes for schools
Palatial school buildings and never ending construction
Teacher's unions that oppose educational standards and teacher performance evaluations
Teacher and school district resistance to educational vouchers or charter schools
                                        and
A product (students) many of which have problems reading (comprehension challenged), math & science avoidant, and generally unsuitable for technology demanding jobs including the U.S. military.

Rustenburg is a very beautiful little city in the Magaliesberg Mountains of Gauteng ( formerly the Transvaal ). My wife and I spent a weekend at a hotel in Rustenburg in 1988.  It was very nice then.  Just a couple of miles from Bophuthatswana and their little Tin Pot Army ( which could take you out in the tall grass and shoot you in the head if they were bored and if they didn't like your looks...) and the resort of Sun City and Pilanesberg Park.
