No one wants to get back to business as usual than the minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga. She is currently trying to get the department of health to review the social distancing rules.
The minister is not alone in wishing schools could return to full time daily attendance. The human rights commission has also voiced its concerns regarding the learning loses children continue to experience.
The Department of basic education has issued two school calendars for next year. The schools calendars will see inland provinces return to school much earlier on the 10th of January for educators and 12th January for learners.
The coastal province will return a week later with teachers returning on the 17th of January and learners on the 19th of January.
The two calendars are still subject to how the coronavirus cases behave and the level the country finds itself in next year.
The start of 2021 academic year was pushed back by a week following a huge increase in coronavirus cases.
