Lobby group spokesperson Leanne Jansen-Thomas says it's Minister Angie Motshekga third term and she needs to deliver.

On Tuesday morning high school learners and lobby group Equal Education will protest outside the Department of Basic Education.

Inadequate infrastructure and violence have been some of the major issues affecting South African schools in recent times.

Bongani Bingwa speaks to Equal Education spokesperson Leanne Jansen-Thomas.

Jansen-Thomas says this is Minister Angie Motshekga third term in this position and she needs to deliver.

She says the violence in schools, as well as unsafe infrastructure, must come to an end.

They must ensure that learners do not have to walk two hours to school.

Leanne Jansen-Thomas, Spokesperson - Equal Education

There needs to be a radical improvement in the quality of primary education.
