Baraka, South Africa’s oldest political party, is seeking to change the countrys education system by offering a comprehensive and free education for all students.
Baraka leader Julius Malema, who has long been the country’s most outspoken critic of the system, has already said he wants to end illiteracy in the country by 2020.
The programme would also allow students to learn at home, while the government would provide free schooling.
Malema said he was in talks with several education companies, including the US, to develop a system to deliver free education in the capital, Johannesburg.
He told the BBC that the project would be free to use, and that it would also be free for businesses to use.
However, he said he did not want the government to impose the free education system on the whole country.
“If you don’t want to go through that, you can use a private school,” he said.
It is unclear what percentage of the population would qualify for free education, although Malema told the Independent newspaper in November that about 30 percent of the country was eligible.
What is Baraka?
Baraka, also known as the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL), is the second largest political party in South Africa.
It was formed in 2002 and was led by Malema for a time, but he left the party in 2013 and became the head of the opposition party, the Democratic Alliance for the People.
According to a 2009 survey by the South African Institute of Economic and Social Research, Baraka was the most popular political party among students aged 16 to 19, but students from poorer families were more likely to support Baraka.
Many students in Baraka schools do not have the financial means to attend private schools.
One in 10 Baraka students attend public schools, and students from low-income families are less likely to attend.
Since the country has a large number of illiterate people, the country is one of the worlds worst illiteracy countries, according to the OECD.
How many Baraka children attend schools?
About 60 percent of Baraka pupils attend public school, but many of them are from poorer households.
About 1.5 million Baraka school children are enrolled in private schools, which means that some of them do not attend school at all.
More than 6 million Baras also attend private school, although this figure is lower than the OECD average of 11 million.
Some Baraka politicians have criticised the government for allowing Baraka to use a privatised system.
Last year, a court ruled that Baraka teachers had breached a court order to teach in a public school in the southern city of Johannesburg, where Malema is now the party leader.
In 2014, Barakas teachers refused to teach children from low socio-economic backgrounds at a Baraka primary school in Pretoria, saying it would be too expensive.
A government spokesman said in a statement that the government was committed to providing free education to all students in South African schools.
“This is not a free education program,” the statement said.
“We will continue to work with our stakeholders and partner organisations to build upon this initiative to provide a quality education to the entire community.”
What are the issues for Baraka and other South African parties?
The countrys opposition parties have long criticised the lack of education for students, saying the country had a long history of low literacy rates.
At the time of the 2011 election, Malema said the government should be “honest” about the education system.
“If we look at South Africa and the other countries that are struggling with illiteracy, we have a long-standing problem.
South Africa has one of South Africas lowest literacy rates, it is one among the lowest countries in the world,” he told an international conference in Johannesburg last year.
There are concerns that Barakan pupils could suffer from high levels of poverty, while Malema has said he does not want to end poverty in South Africans.
Education is not free in South Korea, where the government subsidises all education costs for all South Korean children.
Students from families with a median household income of $70,000 a year receive free schooling, but the education budget is smaller than in South America.
Why are Baraka parties so unpopular?
Malema is widely disliked for his harsh criticism of the government, but his party enjoys widespread support in South, and it has gained seats in the National Assembly in recent years.
Its primary aim is to dismantle the education systems of the ruling African National Congress (ANC) party and of the former regime in the 1990s.
When South Africa first entered the African Union in 1991, the South Africans government introduced a series of reforms to end the decades-long dominance of the ANC.
South Africa entered the Union in 1998 as a part of the African Economic Community, and
