Abstract

One of the main solutions to the abject poverty and inequality in South Africa is the massive deployment of quality education and training interventions. A key argument of this paper is that ICT can contribute in advancing educational endeavours. The study on which this paper is based on sought to investigate how the South African universal access policy to telecommunication services affects the integration of ICT in educational activities. The findings of the study appear to indicate that the South African universal access policy to telecommunication service has failed the integration of ICT in teaching and learning activities. This is due to the fact that most initiatives related to the implementation of the universal access policy have miserably failed.
