A good SGB is elected by good parents - Panyaza Lesufi

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi urges parents to vote for this year's SGBs and urges them to participate in this year's school governing body elections.

Public schools across the country will conduct their school’s SGB elections from 1 to 31 March. Lesufi explains the process.

We have solicited the support of the IEC. It is a two-stage process. There will be a parents meeting to nominate parents, and then parents will go through the skill and talent of those people, and then there will be another meeting where parents will come and cast their votes.

Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng MEC

It is very crucial. If parents are not part of that process, they must not come later and complain about the credibility or character of the SGB. A good SGB is elected by good parents.

Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng MEC

We are talking about huge amounts of money that needs to be managed by the SGB so it is very important that parents take this seriously.
