In the run up to the 1994 elections, the ANC promised, among other things, free and compulsory education for the first ten years. It promised more schools, books and teachers for all children. In a famous speech, Mandela stated: "Young lions of South Africa go to school and arm yourself with education, for it will be a necessity for the country's future". Inequalities affecting the poor in education were mentioned as a priority. But ANC has changed its party line. The current education reforms will worsen the inequalities of the past:
