Without Parental Consent

11 July 2014.

  

The IFP in Kwazulu-Natal has expressed concern over a decision taken by the principal of Ngali High School, in Emvuyane, Vryheid to transfer learners to another school without consulting their parents.

 

The IFP KZN, Education Spokesperson, Thembeni kaMadlopha-Mthethwa MPL, today said, “The principal had no right to transfer learners from one school to another without consulting their parents for whatever reason.”

 

“The IFP calls on the KZN Department of Education to immediately attend to this matter as learners have to be back at school soon and begin preparing for their final exams.  It is vital to ensure that no learner gets left behind in this academic year. The IFP will keep a watching brief on progress made,” she concluded.
