Makhura tasks Lesufi at Gauteng SOPA

Staff Writer | Jul 03, 2019
David Makhura, the premier of Gauteng, demands to see results at a primary school level from MEC for Education, Panyaza Lesufi.

Lesufi was ordered by Makhura to produce yearly primary school results. Lesufi was instructed to put into effect the ‘national integrated assessment framework’.

The results will be released publicly just like matric results. This initiative is intended to promote accountability and transparency on performance across the entire system, and should empower parents to make better decisions regarding the education of their children.

Lesufi is set to present a plan to the executive council within the next 100 days on the current situation of all primary schools, as well as plans on how to improve primary schools with poor performance. 

In his State of the Nation Address (SONA) President Cyril Ramaphosa said that the government will be working on improving early childhood development.

Makhura said that in these 100 days Lesufi must outline interventions that will focus on improving poorly performing primary schools. Makhura said school safety will be prioritised and he further instructed Safety MEC Faith Mazibuko to deploy 10 patrollers in every ward to ‘secure schools from criminal elements’.
