The Provincial Education Department has announced that applications for the 2020 academic year for grades 1 and grade 8 learners will open on the 13 of May and run until the 15th of July.

The department says the new admission regulations that seek to ensure equitable access to all learners regardless of class, race or language.

The regulations also define new feeder zones that aim to overcome the apartheid geography.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says the amendments to the newly introduced admissions regulations are aimed at doing away with policies that embrace the culture of apartheid.

“Access to public schools has been a hotly contested process over the past 25 years of our new democracy. There has been a tension to open all public schools on the one hand and attempts to reserve certain schools for the privileged on the other hand.”

Lesufi also announced that the decision on the medium of teaching in schools now lies with the head of department and not the school itself.
