Cosas threatens to close private schools in Gauteng

The Gauteng Basic Education Department says private schools are to blame for threats being made by Cosas.

The student body is threatening to shut down private schools in Gauteng, citing safety concerns.

Its members mounted a protest outside a private school in Roodepoort on Tuesday.

Private schools are not allowed to operate before Monday next week, while public schools are scheduled to open on 15 February.

The education department’s Steve Mabona has encouraged schools to comply with the law.

“We find ourselves in this situation because of some of the behaviour of our colleagues in the private and independent school sector.

“Before the gazette was publicized, some of these schools were operating. We were receiving information from parents to say some of the schools are in operation,” he said.

“We said to them, in a communique coming from the HoD, you are encouraged to delay because the infections were increasing at the time,” he said.
