EWN reporter, Thando Kubheka says people moving from one province to the other in search of greener pastures, is partly to blame for the large number of children who are still looking to be placed in the Gauteng province.
According to the Gauteng Education Department, 58 000 children still have no place in the province's schools.
Kubheka says another reason is due to late registrations, parents leaving this process to the last moment.
The education department says these late applications are making the process of placing the children very slow and very difficult.— Thando Kubheka, EWN Reporter
There's also not enough schools to accommodate the fast growing number of children in Gauteng.— Thando Kubheka, EWN Reporter
MEC of education in Gauteng has promised parents that their children will be placed at schools between now and May, but those who applied early will be given first preference.
