Schools Might Reopen in June Except those in ‘Hot Spots’
More than 5,000 schools in Covid-19 hot spots across SA, including 929 private schools, will stay shut next month if the cabinet approves a new proposal by the basic education department.
Keeping these schools shut would affect 3.7-million pupils and 134,779 teachers.
The proposal – discussed on Wednesday with the National Alliance of Independent Schools Associations (Naisa), which represents nine private schools’ associations – is expected to be unveiled when basic education minister Angie Motshekga briefs the media tomorrow about how ready the provinces are to reopen schools.
