Johannesburg - Civil society lobby group Section27 is impressed with the state of text book deliveries in Limpopo for the 2014 academic year, it said on Monday.

"We commend the department of basic education and the Limpopo department of education on their improvement in textbook delivery for the 2014 academic year," Section27 spokesperson Nikki Stein said in a statement.

Stein said the organisation used a sample of 80 schools in the area, and that all schools had confirmed 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 textbooks shortages in the province to both departments and the lobby group to ensure that shortages were addressed as soon as possible.

      What should be the norm has now become an achievement. Government trying so hard to look competent ahead of 2014 elections.

    Was it not supposed to be delivered before the schools reopened for the year?

    This shouldn't even be news, nor an achievement. This should be a given.
