The leader of DA argued that 80% of the schools in South Africa were still using the rotation system . He said that most learners were not getting sufficient learning time time as a result of the rotation .The DA leader expressed devastation at the fact that 80 % of the school learners were only getting half the time of their learning period , hence the need to end rotation .
