The Department of Basic Education is accusing SECTION27 of acting like a political party

The Department of Basic Education is accusing civil rights NGO, SECTION27, of acting like a ‘political party’.

This comes after SECTION27 announced that it is considering taking the department to court again, for failing to deliver textbooks on time in some schools in Limpopo.

The organisation, which says it has contacted 14 schools which are yet to receive textbooks, describes the delay as ‘unacceptable’ since it denies children their basic right to education.
