This video illustrates the background and current situation of South Africa's education. It mentions the two class of education in the country, the black and white receive different levels of education. The video suggests the improvements made towards the education system but there still a very long road ahead for it to be equal.

The article depicts the horrible education scene in South Africa. The country's school simply isn't able to teach the kids the necessary skills to survive in the real world. 27% of pupils who have attended school for six years cannot read, compared with 4% in Tanzania and 19% in Zimbabwe. It can clearly show that the education is still strongly affected by the apartheid. In order to improve the economy, the racial barrier must be removed and give the black population to be educated the way the white population is.
The CIA World Factbook summarizes and has all the economic data from the country. It can be seen from the data that South Africa's economy is very weak with barely any growth.

The article digs deeper into what the new president of South Africa can do to improve the economy. They bring in Ian Goldin, who was a senior economic adviser during Mandela's run as president. He states that the "most crucial issue for South Africa is jobs and growth". What he stated is basically interconnected, in order to achieve growth economically, there has to be an increase in output, which is generated by people working and making things, and this means for the increase of employment. But in order to increase employment, there has to be enough jobs for the people; in South Africa, the main industries are mines and with the new president's great interest in expanding the mining industry, the economy should see an improvement.
This article talks about seven problems that South Africa is currently facing if the economy wants to be improved. With South Africa's previous president Jacob Zuma, the country's economic growth is very weak and unemployment is very high. With the new president stepping in, he will face multiple challenges if he wants to improve South Africa's economy. I believe the main problem that contributes to South Africa's high unemployment is still the racial inequality that the country faces. A tenth of its population, being the whites, control 90% of the country's whole economy. Breaking down the racial barrier would be a major step to improve the economy.
