Thousands of pupils still not placed in schools – Gauteng education department says they will catch up



The online application system is being blamed for thousands of children missing out on school.

While school began a week ago, thousands of pupils in Gauteng have not yet started their academic year.

Unhappy parents have resorted to visiting the district offices in Ekurhuleni in large numbers, hoping to get placements for their children in Grade 1 and Grade 8.

Technology fails pupils

The online applications system, meant to ease the placement of pupils in Gauteng schools, is being blamed for the more than 34 000 children that are missing out on school.

Parents want this new system to be scrapped because it is not working for them and their unregistered children.
