How South Africa Will Be Changed Forver
During the Apartheid in South Africa the weak and poor economy negatively impacted the people. Much of the economy issues had to deal with the schools. The private schools could not survive without their grants in aid some were either closed down or handed over to the government. In 1973 the black univeristy and trade union workers resulted in going on strike as a result of the poor schooling. Most of the communities were trying to help the schools by collecting money to provide for more classrooms they would employ teachers and employ learning materials for the schools. Without the community there to help the schools not many of the students would be able to recieve an education. Although there were many economic isssues some parts of the South Afriican economy postively effected the country during the apartheid. The discovery of diamonds near Kimberley and gold on the Witwatersrand helped transform South Africa a lot. The success of the mines were able to bring black africans into the wage economy. Even though they had a limited manufacturing economy, with a few industrial resources, high unemployment and only a marginal subsistence agriculture the economy still managed to stay developed. The success of the industries and mild climate alos contributed to a developed economy. In 2008 the black unemployment had fallen, but still stood at 30 percent. As the success of the African Economy continues to grow the rate of unemployment will decrease. The economy was able to survive under Apartheid because of the hard workers.
