The Gauteng Education Department says that it is in consultation with parents to try and provide their children with alternative schools but there are at least 300 appeals from parents who are not happy with their allocation.
While Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi said on Sunday that he was satisfied with the progress of the 2020 online admissions placement process, some parents have continued to raise concerns.
Gauteng education spokesperson Steve Mabona says they are working with schools to make sure they increase capacity.
We are actually still working with the schools, trying to make sure that we increase capacity so that we can then provide them with mobile units that will be in a position to take more of the learners. We are continuing to do that, looking at all the objections and appeals.— Steve Mabona, spokesperson - Gauteng Education Department
The issue that is at hand is the issue of appeals and objections.— Steve Mabona, spokesperson - Gauteng Education Department
