14 March 2011
Poor performance of pupils and teachers at Soweto schools has been criticized by Gauteng Education MEC Barbara Creecy.
Creecy was speaking in Johannesburg on Sunday at the launch of the Soweto Education Summit.
The summit is aimed at looking at issues such as discipline, safety, teaching methods and the improvement of school governance and management.
High schools in Soweto had a pass rate of 63 percent; this was lower than the provincial average which was 17 percent.
The Soweto Education Summit will be in April.
