Congress of South African Trade
Union in the Western Cape said it
is concerned about the deep inequalities in education in the province and Premier
Helen Zille is endorsing these inequalities by being silent on the issues.
Cosatu Spokesperson Tony Ehrenreich
said MEC Donald Grant needs to resign because of his inability to bring and
manage fair opportunities for all learners in the province.
Ehrenreich said Premier Helen Zille condemns the efforts of learners in many provinces without any evidence of mismanagement and probably partly because its black administration there.
"Then she also goes further and does not
deal at all with the issues of inequality that gives rise to the skewed outcomes
in education in the Western Cape and
that is why Cosatu is going to file a section 27 at Nedlac so that we can strike as parents against the Premier and her policies in the province, to ensure that there is a focus on all leaners not only the wealthy Ehrenreich added.
