While the 2022 school year has barely started its third term, the education department has revealed its plans for future school years. The department's proposed 2025 school calendar will feature a change to what is currently being practised in schools.

 


The education department has announced several changes in the hope of improving education outcomes in South Africa. One significant change has been revealed in the 2024 school calendar.

 


School suspension, expulsion, compulsory attendance and language of instruction policies are just some of the continuous issues raised in the latest proposed schools regulations. Concerned groups have called for greater clarity related to some of the clauses in the governments plans.

 


Overcrowded classrooms continue to hinder the ability of children to learn in schools around South Africa. The issue of overcrowded classrooms has resulted in a Gauteng school being closed for days as concerned parents demanded answers.

 


Education is a basic human right that is enshrined in South Africa’s constitution.
