The Democratic Alliance in Limpopo said schools across the province are struggling to stay afloat five months into the school year.
The DA said this is because the Education Department has not sent them basic funding required by law.
The DA conducted an investigation and found that schools servicing the province’s poorest learners are receiving as little as R30 per child.
DA Limpopo Provincial Leader Jacques Smalle said what is currently occurring within the department and the schools is that normal accounts that would have been covered by these norms and standards which are suppose to pay for water and electricity is not being done.
Smalle has given the MEC for Provincial Treasurer to make sure that all payments are done within 48 hours and failure to do so will results in the matter being taken to the Human Rights Commission and the Basic Education Minister.
