CENTRE FOR CHILD LAW AND LEGAL RESOURCES CENTRE BRING VITAL CASE TO GRAHAMSTOWN HIGH COURT ON APPOINTMENT OF TEACHERS

Today a crucial case is being heard in the Eastern Cape High Court (Grahamstown) that has been brought by the Centre for Child Law and five school governing bodies, represented by the Legal Resources Centre. The case concerns the unequal and unfair distribution of teachers to schools in the province and the failure of the Eastern Cape Department of Basic Education (ECDBE) to implement their own ‘post provisioning plan’ for 2012. A post provisioning plan is a plan to ensure that there is a fair distribution of teachers to all schools in the province and that schools have the teachers (and other staff) that they require to provide basic education.
