DA concerned by the number of schools offering maths

Lusanda Bill
16 July 2015

Democratic Alliance MP of Basic Education Annette Lovemore said being denied maths education is a denial of achieving one’s true potential in life, and severely limits our young people from seizing opportunities.

This follows after a DA parliamentary question revealed that one in four South African schools do not offer Mathematics in grades 10, 11 or 12.

Lovermore said 63% of schools in the Eastern Cape are offering young people mathematics at school, in the Western Cape it is 91%. Overall nationally 75%.

“25% of schools are not even offering mathematics and therefore not offering the opportunity to peruse the well paid, long term prospect careers that they should be able to get” Lovemore added.
