ANC STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO SADTU CALL FOR MINISTER OF BASIC EDUCATION TO RESIGN
SADTU is now accustomed to calls for resignations of senior public officials in the Department of Basic Education.
It is the ANC's view that SADTU is missing an opportunity to contribute positively to the debate contained in the ANC 53rd National Conference Resolution of making education an essential service. Such a resolution is intended to focus in improving the education of a black child.
This resolution will ensure that we provide education that will contribute to the socio- economic transformation and emancipation of a black child in the South African economy.
We have hope and trust in the collective leadership of SADTU that they will use this opportunity to contribute to this resolution of ensuring that education becomes an essential service.
Statement issued by Gwede Mantashe, ANC Secretary General, March 6 2013
