Here in SA we commemorate the students and children who died during fighting with the Apartheid government, with a public holiday called "Youth Day"..
However, my university, in their wisdom, have told us that we still have to write exams on this public holiday.. Which is apparently a very serious business, because people from Rhodes and neighboring universities lost their lives during the struggle against Apartheid.. Meaning a lot of guys have to miss the commemoration services and such..
Obviously its quite a local issue, and it doesn't affect me because I don't sit an exam on that day, but I really don't know what to think about the issue.. Who is at fault, the university? Or are the Students just being too damn lazy as usual?
