Textbooks matter: the state goes to court AGAIN

Textbook shortages continue to bedevil education. Earlier this year, the Western Cape Education Department agreed to postpone second term exams following complaints of shortages after Maitland High School students protested.

This time an appeal was brought by the DBE, the Limpopo Department of Education and other state entities against the judgment handed down in favour of Basic Education for All (BEFA) and others last year.
