Education Head welcomes ruling

2013-10-04 00:00

KWAZULU-NATAL Education head of department Dr Nkosinathi Sishi welcomed the decision by the Constitutional Court. “I expected this ruling because it was in line with the national regulations on admission policies,” he said.

Sishi urged parents to apply for admission for their children early in the year so that by the end of October all admissions would have been completed.

“We cannot run away from the fact that better managed schools are likely to be affected by large numbers of parents wanting their children to be placed in those schools.

“That is why both parents and school management must comply with the national regulations to ensure that pupils were not left out,” said Sishi.

“We don’t want to erode the quality of education by crowding schools.”
