The African Christian Democratic Party said it is appalled at the decision of Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga to shelve plans to have matric exam markers write competency tests this year. 

Umalusi recommended to Parliament that it must introduce the tests however the South African Democratic Teachers Union blocked the proposal. 

ACDP’s Wayne Thring has said it is important for teachers that mark the matric exam papers are properly qualified for the work and are highly skilled.

Thring further said the fact that the Minister has buckled under the pressure of a Union that does not bode well for the education of the learners as a whole and education is intertwined with the economy.
