The public have until Friday to comment on the ‘School Capture Bill’
8 November 2017
The DA urges all School Governing Bodies (SGBs), teachers and school principals to submit comments on the Draft Basic Education Laws Amendment Bill by the close of business on Friday, 10 November 2017 to ensure that the process is as participatory as possible.
The DA is concerned with the implications of the Draft Bill as it will ensure the power that SGBs have is effectively taken away from them, by reducing their input in:
- The admission of learners; and
- The appointment of Heads of Departments (HODs), principals and deputy principals
