The Star newspaper today reported that some matric learners are studying under unfavourable conditions while on a study camp.
According to the newspaper, the learners were not given proper accommodation and were forced to eat leftovers – with some of them having to sleep on the floor.
Stephen Grootes spoke to Gauteng education spokesperson Phumla Sekhonyane, who refuted the claims, saying that she went to the camp herself with MEC Panyaza Lesufi and found no evidence of poor living conditions.
