Schools have taken a hit, and it’s going to get worse: Motshekga
Minister says the full extent of lockdown on schools is not known, but many more school days will still be lost
Dozens of teaching days have already been lost to Covid-19, and more are going to be lost in the weeks to come – and the full impact of this is not yet known.
This is according to basic education minister Angie Motshekga, who was updating SA on the situation in schools as the coronavirus continues on a rapid march through the country.
She was speaking in the wake of a decision last week that pupils – known as the “second cohort” – who were meant to return to school from Monday, July 6, would no longer do so. ..
