Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi says the department has made tremendous progress in the twinning programme although it has not been easy.
The programme involves pairing an advantaged school with a disadvantaged school and allows their school governing bodies to work together as one.
This has allowed a cross-pollination of learning and exposes kids of different races and economic groups.
We have made tremendous progress. It is a new phenomenon to make sure our learners can share resources.— Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng MEC for Education
This programme is yielding good results and we are quite excited about it.— Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng MEC for Education
We believe we can go to the regulation stage now and regulate it in the manner that it assists schools in strengthening their budgets or governance capabilities.— Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng MEC for Education
