For more than two years, equal education has been committed to ensuring that the Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, publishes minimum standards and standards for school infrastructure. In March 2012, after exhausting all other forms of democratic engagement, Equal Education, represented by the Legal Resources Centre, filed legal proceedings against the Minister. The founding documents consisted of an affidavit from Equal Education President Yoliswa Dwane and additional affidavits from more than 20 schools across South Africa. These describe in detail the appalling conditions faced by many schools. Standards and norms should classify schools according to need. Schools in poor condition, in uncertain structures, should be classified and prioritized as such. These learners cannot be expected to wait 10 years. On the second day of the solidarity visit, the delegation visited four schools: Ntapane Senior Secondary School, Ngangelizwe High School, Samson Primary School and Nomandla Primary School. EE`s approach was to make political benefits, not through the courts. However, in 2012, it became increasingly clear that there was a need for the courts to compel the Minister to enact standards. Article 29(1)(a) of the Constitution provides that “everyone has the right to basic education”. Unlike other socio-economic rights, this right is fully and immediately applicable.
In NEIMS, it is stated that of the 24,793 public regular schools: “poor” conditions in schools, The New Age, Michael Appel On August 14 On August 27, 2012, Yoliswa Dwane filed the affidavit of equal rights. The affidavit showed that Minister Mothekga`s argument against the implementation of norms and norms was based on a misunderstanding of the right to basic education. The affidavit also challenged Minister Motshekga`s argument that MEC education opposes minimum standards and norms. The trial date has been set for 20 November 2012. Standard standards and rules apply to all public schools in South Africa. This is very important, as it means that all learners in South Africa, regardless of race and class, can learn in environments with adequate infrastructure. . . .
