Grade R learners ommited on Limpopo 2014 Post establishment for school.

17 February 2014, 08:21
Open note to Limpopo DBE

Serving as a teacher in Limpopo is an addition to stress and frustrations. Schools have received post establishments with almost every school experiencing reduction of number of teachers.It have noted that grade R learners are not included in post establishments. No explanation was given to school. It means that learners who are enrolled in grade R won't have teachers by the time 2014 post establishment is employed.It is very questionable that DBE in Limpopo used 2012 data to determine number of posts over school for 2014. I thought the new MEC for education was visionery enough to ensure that education of an African child is not negotiated to happen in our school. Unfortunately we are negotiating for review of post provisioning in our province.

The focus has now shifted away from teaching our to who remains or go from the school. I strongly oppose 2014 post establishments in Limpopo. I think data for 2013 be used for post provisioning. It will minimise the crisis we have of shortage of teachers.Instead of using 2012 data DBE should add posts for remedial teaching to all schools in order to maximise and increase learner achievement. Instead of cutting down number of teachers per school, DBE should spend energy and time on improving payment of norms and standard funds allocation which is an added crisis. Instead of cutting number of teachers per schools, DBE should correct funds that are allocated to schools per and give schools R1000+ per learner. Schools are not able to add resources available at schools. The truth is that DBE should be completely regulated from the office of minister. This will allow us to enjoy benefits of what is happening in Gauteng and Western Cape.

Lastly, instead of cutting down number of teachers in our schools MEC should ensure that there are security personnel to intensify safety at schools. We need modern NSNP kitchens for schools. We need improved sanitary systems in our school. In Bela Bela thousands of rands for schools are channeled to municipal services. Schools are left with little money for day to day running of school business. Money paid to this municipality comes from horns and standards allocation. Municipal services cost our schools more than what we receive from DBE. Instead of cutting down number of teachers in our schools, DBE in Limpopo schould inherit municipal accounts and make payments for services consumed by schools. When you municipality you can't be allowed to buy electricity. To me electricity is an essential resource which schools shouldn't be denied to have.I have more issues I can raise here. I conclude by asking MEC to put interest of our learners first by making sure that she withdraws 2014 post establishments and allow every Grade R learner a teacher to teach.

I hope and trust that together we can improve learner achievement by doing things the simple way and the correct way.

Oscar's Punishment does not fit t...

When putting a murderer on trial one needs to disregard his social status. This in my eyes is something they didn't do. They should have treated him as "Oscar, the guy who killed Reeva".  Read more...

Oscar Pistorius: Unjust Justice

I am absolutely disappointed at the 5yr sentence that Oscar received. I believe that Gerrie Nel did a brilliant job and Judge Masipa should have found him guilty of murder in the first place.  Read more...
