Special school neglected: Human Rights must investigate

Today, 29 September 2014 , the Shadow Deputy Minister of Basic Education , Desiree Van Der Walt (MP) and DA Leader, Jacques Smalle (MPL) will be laying charges with the Human Rights Commission against the department of education for failing to built a new school for Setotolwane Special school learners.

The school was declared unfit for learners by the department but continuous empty promises to move them to Hwiti High School for years now has proven that there is indeed “no good story to tell in Education”. The department’s failure is a clear violation of children’s rights enshrined by the constitution.
