The Zero Dropout Campaign has been trying to tackle the school dropout rate. Around 40% of learners dropout of school before reaching matric. 

Matric results are out for learners at independent schools. The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) said this year's pass rate is lower than the year before.  

Monday marked the first day back at school for many learners. Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga paid a visit to schools in Gauteng to welcome learners for the rest of the year.

Today is the first day back at school for many learners, following the postponement of the reopening of schools. 

As schools reopen on Monday, some learners remain without placements. Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga said the department continues to struggle finding schools with enough space for learners. 

At the start of 2021, Curro Holdings, the JSE-listed independent education provider, launched Curro Choice, a personalised learning offering that broadens the range of subjects available to every Curro high school learner nationwide.

With the new year now in progress, the Department of Basic Education has released the official school calendar for 2021.

The Department of Basic Education could be faced with a record number of dropouts as some matric learners who enrolled at the beginning of the year did not complete the school year. 

The Department of Basic Education is not exactly at peace with the recent judgement to set aside the rewrite of 2 matric exam papers. 

Following the leak of 3 matric papers, the Department of Basic Education has made a tough decision for the class of 2020. Two exam papers will be rewritten, this the first national rewrite in the history of matric exams.
