Education experts and unions have thrown their weight behind calls by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) and the DA for an end to rotational learning at schools.

The DBE said it lobbied the National Coronavirus Command Council to allow it to get all pupils back into class on a full-time basis. Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, schools have used the rotational method to limit the number of people at schools and to minimise the spread of the virus.

On Wednesday, the DA filed papers in the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria to compel the department to end rotational classes immediately.
