Section 27 impressed by Limpopo textbook delivery

2014-01-20 14:12

Civil society lobby group Section 27 is impressed with the state of textbook deliveries in Limpopo for the 2014 academic year.

“We commend the department of basic education and the Limpopo department of education on their improvement in textbook delivery for the 2014 academic year,” Section 27 spokesperson Nikki Stein said in a statement today.

Stein said the organisation had used a sample of 80 schools in the area and that all schools had confirmed the delivery of textbooks.

The school governing bodies in the sample told the organisation that the Limpopo education department would address shortages reported to them without delay.

She encouraged schools to continue reporting textbook shortages in the province to both departments and the lobby group to ensure that shortages were addressed as soon as possible.
