SECTION27 Heads to Court Over Textbooks

SECTION27 files papers in court after it emerged that hundreds of Limpopo pupils are still without textbooks

SECTION27 has filed papers at the North Gauteng High Court after it emerged that hundreds of Limpopo pupils are still without textbooks and are also facing an inadequate departmental catch-up plan.

The organisation decided to go back to court after the basic education department failed to comply with two court orders forcing it to deliver textbooks to Limpopo schools that had been without books since the beginning of the school year.

"We have tried to follow up with the department on delivery of textbooks, implementation of a meaningful catch-up plan and the state of procurement for textbooks for 2013 but they have not responded to any of our correspondence … we have no other choice but to go back to court," explains Nikki Stein.
