While the article expounds on the key role of education, specially tertiary education, plays in employment it does not specify whether the statistic around ’employment’ includes those that are self-employed.
Self-employment is the real key
It is the opinion of UPside that education is not only key to ’employment’ but rather economic self sufficiency. After all it is economic self sufficient whether through formal employment or self-employment that will drive the economic engine of South Africa to help fuel social upliftment. Far more research and support needs to be given to self-employment.
