Parliament’s Basic Education committee says mud schools in KwaZulu-Natal must be eradicated in order to give learners a chance to feel safe and stimulated at school.


The committee is urging the provincial Education Department to find solutions to the perennial infrastructure challenges.

Some mud classrooms destroyed by storms during the holidays have since been replaced with mobile units.

Learning and teaching will commence on the 15 February, however, some students will be returning inadequate structures that they use as classrooms.

The committee says mobile units are an expensive option and they have to be replaced with proper structures.

A third concern that needs to be addressed is vandalism of school infrastructure.
