The Democratic Alliance (DA) is preparing its own legal challenge to the Basic Education Laws Amendment Bill, saying it will fight all the way to the Constitutional Court.

The bill was passed by the National Assembly yesterday.

The Bela Bill seeks to amend the South African Schools and the Educators’ Employment Act.

It will see Grade R being made compulsory and also regulate the language policy at schools.

The DA’s, Baxolile Nodada, says they will not support a bill that disempowers schools, parents, and communities.
