Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga is expected to meet with teacher unions and principals from the Capricorn region, at the Lebowakgomo Civic Hall outside Polokwane today. This as the Limpopo Department of Education struggles to deal with the non-delivery of books in the third term of the school year.
The Department has already missed two deadlines set by the High Court in Pretoria to deliver books to schools in the province.
Primary school teachers and principals will meet Motshekga first and in the afternoon high school educators will get a chance with the minister. Motshekga will update the stakeholders on the department's efforts to rectify some of the mistakes which led to the ongoing textbook crisis.
Yesterday she met with education MEC Dickson Masemola and other senior departmental officials in a closed meeting. Wits Professor, Mary Metcalfe released a report that identified several problems in the non-delivery of books.
Two other task teams are still probing the non-delivery of books in the province.
