Johannesburg – The Limpopo textbooks case will be heard on 22 and 23 April in the North Gauteng High Court before Judge Tuchten who had previously presided over the urgent application.
The case was brought by Better Education For All (BEFA) and 18 schools seeking to compel the National Department of Basic Education (DBE) and the Limpopo Department of Education (LDoE) to deliver textbooks to 39 schools in Limpopo and to develop a comprehensive plan on textbook delivery to schools facing a textbook shortage in the province.
