Open letter to South Africa’s students‚ universities and government‚ represented by Minister in the .
THE Gauteng Department of Education said it is ready for Matric 2009. Fine, but is it ready for the matric results?
I don't mean the numbers, but the actual issuing of certificates.
My son wrote matric last year. He asked for remarks and he is still waiting for a hard copy of his certificate. I contacted his school this morning to make sure of this. He has applied to university, but he has no proof that he has passed matric.
He isn't the only one. In April, there were reports of matriculants who couldn't get jobs as a result. Some even forfeited their deposits at universities.
GDE needs to get its act together . People are fed up and will not tolerate any more haphazard action.
