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 their predecessors.

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.
