Spokesperson to provincial education MEC Debbie Schaefer says the number of unplaced learners in the Western Cape has been reduced to 7 900.
Jessica Shelver said when schools re-opened last week, the education department recorded 18 484 learners not placed.
Obviously the number is still high and we are still under pressure to accommodate these learners— Jessica Shelver, Spokesperson for Minister Debbie Schafer (WCED)
In terms of policy we can't officially de-register learners until the tenth consecutive school day so we have learners that were enrolled for this and they haven't shown up.— Jessica Shelver, Spokesperson for Minister Debbie Schafer (WCED)
