CENTRE FOR CHILD LAW RESPONDS TO GAUTENG SCHOOL PLACEMENT WOES

The beginning of the 2019 academic year saw some parents scramble to find places for their children in Gauteng schools. On 7 January 2019, it was reported that just over 17 000 learners still needed to be placed in grades 1 and 8 classes. The Centre for Child Law (the Centre) is concerned by the persistence of school placement shortages in the province.

The Centre calls on the Gauteng Provincial Education Department (GPED) to remedy this through review of its planning process. In line with this call, the Centre is completing a study to highlight the problems faced by the GPED and possible solutions.
