KwaZulu-Natal Education MEC Kwazi Mshengu has called on parents to be more hands on when it comes to the education of their children.
Mshengu convened a meeting at the department’s office in Pietermaritzburg that included principals, district administrators and the heads of department.
He says educating pupils should not only be a priority for teachers, but parents also need to play a positive role by showing interest and being part of their child’s educational journey.
The MEC states that the level of teacher absenteeism is also too high, causing a gap and disturbance in a well planned daily routine of a child, vowing to act on this, by holding school principals accountable.
Mshengu has also called on school principals to be open about the problems that could have contributed to the negative year end results.
