Limpopo schools crisis deepens - media briefing

On Friday 15 June 2012 at 9.30am the National Association of School Governing Bodies (NASGB), SECTION27 and Khulumani Support Group will hold a community & press briefing at:

Regional Training Centre

  • Department of Health & Social Development
  • Cnr Rabe & Paul Kruger St, Polokwane.
  • All members of the media are invited and welcome to attend.

June 15th is the date by which the Pretoria High Court ordered that all schools in Limpopo should have received their text books for the new CAPS curriculum for Grades R, 1, 2, 3 (the foundation phase) and Grade 10.

This week a delegation from NASGB, SECTION27 and TAC has been meeting with school principals, governing bodies and learners in various parts of Limpopo.

We will report back on our findings; the ‘catch-up plan’ which the Department has devised and submitted to us; as well as discuss our immediate next steps if the National and Provincial Basic Education Departments place themselves in contempt of court by Saturday 16th of June.

This is a matter of the utmost importance. The lives of our future generations are being imperilled by the arrogance, maladministration and corruption of the few that they have trusted to run one of the most important departments of government.
