OPEN LETTER TO LEARNERS, PARENTS, TEACHERS AND SCHOOL GOVERNING BODIES IN LIMPOPO FROM SECTION27

Despite this we are aware of the exceedingly difficult conditions in which teaching and learning take place, and the challenges faced by teachers, learners, parents and school governing bodies in many schools in Limpopo
