Bloemfontein - The reappointment of Angie Motshekga as basic education minister was welcomed by the Federation of Governing Bodies of SA Schools (Fedsas) on Monday.

"Minister Motshekga was the first education minister who was prepared to admit to mistakes and attempts to make improvements," said Fedsas CEO Paul Colditz.

Colditz said in view of the progress made in education in South Africa during the past few months, Motshekga's reappointment was welcomed.

During her first term, Fedsas was involved in a number of task teams to tackle problems in education.

"Continuity is important in education. A new director general for education has to be appointed which makes it even more important that there is a top government official who can be held accountable in terms of plans and policy that have been implemented or will be implemented soon."

Colditz said although Motshekga's first term was characterised by controversy there were also examples of good leadership and initiative.

"We want to build on this," said Colditz.

Fedsas was committed to co-operation and dialogue with the ministry.

"We will continue to represent the interests of our members because the only goal of all role-players in education should be the interests of our children," he said.

Fedsas is a voluntary association representing about 1 700 public schools school governing bodies.
