Good Morning Angels: A young teacher's dilemma

A young teacher has a dilemma. She has done the work and achieved the marks, but she cannot get her diploma.

BACKGROUND:  Imagine finishing your three-year, full-time degree with five distinctions, while working to support yourself. Then, enrolling for a diploma and finishing that with distinctions too - only to find that you cannot qualify. That’s what happened to Anne-Marie Kruger. Her class fees for her first degree in languages was covered by a NFSAS loan and she applied again for her teaching diploma. Only after writing the final exams, she was told that this would NOT be covered by a NFSAS loan, as post-grad studies don’t qualify for state student loans. Anne-Marie has a temporary job waiting for her at a school, but she cannot take it, if she doesn’t have her diploma, and for that she needs to pay R32,670! Her sister, Roelien, asked Good Morning Angels to help.
