Spokesperson on Education

The Gauteng Education Department will meet with the parents of the Malusi informal settlements in Hercules, Tshwane this afternoon to engage with parents whose children are battling to attend school because of  the lack of scholar transport.

The DA in Gauteng wants the Department to make the education of each child a priority, regardless of their background.

I hope the Department and the parents are able to come to an understanding beneficial to the learners and identify a clear strategy to counter this problem.

It is unacceptable that there are learners who have to sit at home due to a lack of scholar transport in Gauteng.
