Rational Schooling || DA Makes New Demands To Basic Education Department

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has asked the Basic Education Department to remove rational schooling which started in 2020 due to Coronavirus. The demand was made recently.

Rational schooling was imposed by the Basic Education Department to curb the spread of Covid-19. The DA who is concerned about the development said it has far-reaching consequences on the development and well-being of pupils. 

"The reality of the situation is that learners have lost over 40% of their learning and teaching time, worse of all the no fee-paying schools which we know are in poor areas have lost between 50% and 70% of their learning and teaching time," said Baxolile Nodada from the DA.

This report got a lot of South Africans talking, some of the users who commented under the post made by eNCA news said they agree with the DA that rational schooling is removed.

Phillippa one of the user who commented said, “Totally agree. The government is using covid to hide the fact that they are so behind with building schools. Easier to rotate and blame covid.”
