Motshekga said the proposed measure was to have anyway numerous understudies back at school as could sensibly be anticipated so they could find a good pace for the lost time.
In any case, the move was met with excusal and investigation from teachers' affiliations.
Watching out for media, Motshekga said the workplace was looking at different measures to have whatever number of children at school as could be permitted.
"I have an admonition which says they don't see any issue with us diminishing the social isolating and it's something we need to attract with both the prosperity [department], NCCC [national Covid request council], and affiliations," said Motshekga.
"I can't wrangle for something which I don't have nearby," she added.
Motshekga said she would meet with the affiliations which were against the activity and analyze a way forward.

"Despite rebukes from the teacher affiliations that 1m social eliminating is ridiculous when all elementary school understudies return to class, it is clear after two school days that consistency with the 1m social isolating is in every practical sense, endless when the customary timetable is followed," said the affiliations.
The affiliations said they were not guided with regards to the new proposed reduced social distance.
"No intelligent confirmation so far has been outfitted to the affiliations in regards to the appropriateness of such a diminishing," they said.
"It is our contention that this matter ought to be the subject of confirmed meetings with the organized appearance calling and that it ought to be maintained by consistent verification that the orchestrated decline will not instant further pollutions among understudies, instructors, and people from the more broad neighborhood."
They said they were strong of having all understudies back to ensure the customary timetables in schools are by and by presented. In any case, they said that can't be to the hindrance of consistency with the fundamental prosperity and security shows.
"Our proposal to schools meanwhile is that where the 1m can't be agreed to, the schools should follow the deviation courses of action as contained in the paper and continue with rotational timetabling.
"This is done to the best benefit of the child, educators, and the neighborhood, to ensure that schools don't end up being super-spreaders however rather the limits against the transmission."Motshekga reacts to analysis over decreasing social separating in schools (msn.com)
