The Department of Basic Education will soon publish provincial infrastructure norms and standards.

The process will include Minister Angie Motshekga going through all draft plans and interrogating and scrutinising all details.

In a statement the department has stated that it is working tirelessly to ensure that the school infrastructure norms and standards are implemented in a systematic and efficient way.

Ministerial Spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga said these plans were put together as part of the regulations for minimum norms and standards for school infrastructure. As government we want to show that we are committed to rolling out infrastructure to all our schools to make sure that they have facilities that are required for normal schooling to take place.

Meanwhile the department has rejected allegations that by not publishing the norms and standards it has something to hide.

The DBE said it has always had a reliable track record of transparency and it has always been the intention of the department to make the plans public in order to allow members of the public to monitor implementation for relevant stakeholders.

Mhlanga said the allegations by some of the NGO’s is so not true and that we cannot rush this process as it is too important.
