Schools Functionality Visits In 2021
KZN LEGISLATURE MEMBERS VISIT SCHOOLS TO MONITOR THEIR FUNCTIONALITY IN THE FIRST WEEK OF THE 2021 SCHOOL CALENDAR YEAR
This week KZN MPLs are conducting oversight visits throughout the province to assess whether teaching and learning is taking place in a safe and conducive environment in public schools across the province.
The visits are taking place amid the deadly second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic which forced the government to delay the opening of schools for more than a month.
The visits, which enter the second day, have so far discovered that, most public schools have opened in a safe and conducive environment where teaching and learning is taking place smoothly.
Members are interacting with various stakeholders including teacher unions, department official, school governing bodies and members of the community to get their views on the challenges that are experienced by schools since the academic year officially started on February 15.
A comprehensive report on these oversight visits will be compiled and presented to the Speaker which will finally be debated in the House by all political parties represented in the Legislature. This forms part of the oversight processes of the Legislature to ensure the delivery of quality education in our province.
