Nzimande meets business leaders to find solutions to Higher Education crisis

Education Minister Blade Nzimande met with business leaders on Tuesday to find solutions to sustainable university education.

EWN reporter, Victor Magwedze says the team stated that the meeting was addressing not only the funding model but also the drop-out rate.

They say there is no quick fix to the situation and it requires a long term implementable plan.

They said they are hoping to come up with a model that will fund poor students completely and implementation will depend on government approval.
