Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga says the national intervention task team tackling problems in the Eastern Cape is making good progress.

Motshekga was speaking at a symposium of the SA Teacher's Union - SATU, held in Port Elizabeth.

The team has developed a plan to put in place to put education in the province on track again.

Motshekga's department will meet five Eastern Cape MECs again on Thursday.

In Gauteng, the education department says stakeholders have given an undertaking that the teaching of the Soweto learners will not be compromised.

The department convened a meeting of the Soweto Education Summit Task Team to discuss recent school disruptions at Meadowlands High and public threats to disrupt preliminary matric exams and precipitate a wild cat teachers’ strike in Soweto.

Several organisations, including trade union Sadtu and the ANC, have distanced themselves from the disruptions and threats.
