The KwaZulu-Natal school which received a zero percent matric pass rate has had no principal since 2000 and has only six teachers -- three of whom were temporary, an education union said on Wednesday.
Zuzanawe High School in northern KwaZulu-Natal was one of the province’s four schools to receive a zero percent matric pass rate during the 2009 examinations.
SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) secretary in KwaZulu-Natal Mbuyiseni Mathonsi said he had found during his visit to the school on Tuesday that the 2009 matric pupils were so disadvantaged that they had to be taken to another school in June.
“Saying that Zuzanawe got zero pass is misleading. Pupils were transferred to Mthwazi High School in Mkuze as early June in 2009 because there were no teachers to teach them. They were taught there,” he said.
