Quality education for our children

The Democratic Alliance will lead a protest for the right to quality education in the streets of Polokwane this coming Monday, 2 July.

The march will Provincial Education Department offices in Biccard Street, where a list of demands will be read.

The demands will be based on the principle that the Department must provide every child in Limpopo with the books they need, on time, every year.

This is a march in solidarity with the children of Limpopo who have had no textbooks to read or study with for the last seven months. We will protest against the provincial Department of Education’s failure to get the basics right, their inability to deliver quality education, and for jeopardising the futures of so many young South Africans.

Children in Limpopo have spent 104 school days without textbooks so far this year and have just 62 days left before the exams begin.

Without books, these children are being deprived of their constitutional right to learn, read and acquire knowledge.
