Minister in the Presidency and chairperson of the National Planning Commission (NPC), Mr Trevor Manuel was the keynote
speaker at the 2012 Rachel's Angels Annual lecture, where he outlined the NPC's Vision 2030 "Improving the quality of education in South Africa."
The state of education in South Africa leaves much to be desired and to some, it seems to be a deteriorating situation. The event was attended by teachers, learners, business and political leaders, as well as various stakeholders who were passionate about developing and improving education.
Minister Trevor Manuel said South Africans should start living out the values found within the constitution. A great deal of thought has gone into the Vision 2030 document and its focus is in line with its title 'Our future - make it work'. Leaders should play an active role in the development of the country.
