SADTU has welcomed the Basic Education
Minister Angie Motshekga’s budget vote which has highlighted, amongst others,
the following an increase of the budget by R2 billion from last year.
This shows that government is still
committed towards making education an apex priority.
The Department’s efforts towards making
history a compulsory subject is encouraging. they agree with Minister Motshekga
when she says, a country that chooses to hide its heritage and historical
footprints from its children takes the risk of having them repeat mistakes of
Nomusa Cembi said this is consistent with
our call to make history a compulsory subject at our schools with emphasis on our
South African history.
“The DA sees education as a commodity which
is for profit making. They hate SADTU because they know that as long as we are
around, education would never be for profit making. We pledge our support for
the transformation of education to contribute towards free compulsory quality
public education for all," Cembi added.
