Motshekga’s plans to partially reopen schools from tomorrow are in serious doubt, according to a report in the Sunday Times.

As part of the staggered approach, the grades 7 and 12 are expected to return to school tomorrow.

The latest report now states that the new twist followed a marathon meeting between Motshekga, MECs, teacher unions and governing body associations last night. The minister is expected to make an announcement today after consulting further, says South African Democratic Teachers’ Union spokesperson Nomusa Cembi.
