At the Quality in Education conference which was held in Athlone over the weekend, many issues, including the improvement of service to pupils was raised.
Western Cape Education MEC Cameron Dugmore addressed teachers, principals, provincial education officials and other stakeholders in education.
Dugmore elaborated that although many strides have been taken to improve education, much work still needs to be done to ensure quality in the system.
“I am not convinced that we are there yet. We have to understand what weaknesses there are, and address them,” says Dugmore.
He added that further improvement in services would only be achieved once there were enough teachers in the system who was implementing the curriculum properly.
