So here it is folks - the cream of the crop from Liberia - the school leavers who thought that they were entitled to a university education. 25 000 kids wrote the university entrance exam and a whopping 0 passed! Not one single, solitary school leaver was granted access to the university to begin a tertiary education. This means that the government run University of Liberia will have no first year students in the coming academic year and that the country's employment figures will rise by 25000. (I should admit that I'm impressed to see that they don't just push them trough and actually allow the failures - a step in the right direction).
The issue here is not the failure of 25 000 prospective students - the issue is the African mentality towards education as a whole. Seemingly none of these kids cared enough to even get a basic grasp of the English language. And when you don;t even have that grounding then you can rest assured that there is no way at all that you can even hope to excel in any other academic arena.
This is Africa - where education for all seems to be a pipedream which means that there will NEVER be a functioning country that is free of corruption and able to support itself without Western aid. (Lets all just take a moment to realise that Liberia was colonised by BLACKS and has NEVER had whites in power)
