Public school teachers have to go where they are sent if they want to remain employed, South African Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga said on Friday. ”The principle we have to follow is that you go where the work is,” she said during a human-development ministerial cluster briefing at Parliament. ”If you can’t move, it means you are saying that you can’t work.”
Motshekga also said that her department is concerned over the number and quality of passes in math and physical science, particularly given the specialized skills the country needed for its drive towards industrialisation, economic growth, and sustainable job creation. The department is also worried about the availability of higher education and workplace opportunities for graduates.
