How did they attain a good education without going to boarding schools or spending money on it? I am talking about both, high school, and college. The timeline is between 1940-1960. During this time there was the Bantu Education Act which segregated education facilities and hindered providing an adequate education. But some still got a good education.
For example, Desmond Tutu. He excelled at school. I am looking for specific examples where the teachers were educated enough to teach well. Maybe Missionary schools, but again they were closed due to the Bantu act.
Another example of Abraham Lincoln. He didn't go to a boarding school or spend money on it.
We know that the University of Cape Town allowed blacks. But was there any fee charged? If yes, then how much?
