JOHANNESBURG - There has been mixed reaction to the Fees Commission report.
Activists say it could lead to a debt bubble.
Some student leaders believe the report is just a smokescreen, saying its recommendations fall short of their expectations.
President Jacob Zuma released the report on Monday after months of delay.
It proposes a new loan scheme based on a government and bank partnership.

It recommends billions be redirected from the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) towards the Technical and Vocational Education (TVET) sector.
But Universities South Africa -- which represents several tertiary institutions -- says the report lacks clear process steps and points to a funding crisis.
Experts are divided on whether raiding the UIF to fund TVET studies, is practical.
