The IFP is extremely concerned today, as reports from rural areas in KwaZulu
Natal indicate that there is mass confusion and chaos at the start of the
ANA assessments today.
"We have received reports this morning that some teachers, arriving to
collect their questions papers at collection points, being told to drive
several kilometers to different collection centres, poles apart. Having to
still drive several kilometers back to their schools, it now means that some
learners might only be able to write their assessment paper later today or
not at all," said Mr Alfred Mponthsane MP, the IFP spokesperson on
Mpontshane said that this incident again highlighted the serious crisis of
leadership and proper management within South Africa's education system.
"How is it possible that teachers were only able to collect papers this
morning, on the day of the examination? Why weren't these papers delivered
to schools long before today? It again speaks to the rot that has become
endemic within our education system," said Mponthsane.
The IFP will continue to monitor the situation and provide more information
as, what can only be described as another crisis for our education system,
