The Educators Union of South Africa has warned that it will physically shut down schools if the Education Department doesn’t close them.
This is in response to Basic Educations and Training Minister, Angie Motshekga’s announcement that schools will remain open.
Schools will remain open. That is the verdict from Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga. She says a blanket approach to closing schools simply will not do.
Motshekga says that COVID-19 cases will be handled according to the differentiated risk adjustment strategy.
Motshekga also announced that all teachers, regardless of age, will be vaccinated.
The vaccine rollout will begin on 23 June and run until schools close on 8 July.
