Teachers are not properly equipped- department
The Basic Education Department says that teachers are not always qualified to teach certain subjects, but still get hired for the position.
These comments were made in lieu of the country's matric pass rate of 72.5% being revealed earlier this week.
The lack of experience and expertise by the teachers directly affects the quality of the lesson, says the department’s Director-General Mathanzima Mweli.
The lack of qualified educators in the country has forced the department to hire teachers from all around Africa.
“It’s through the generosity of neighbouring countries like Zimbabwe that we’ve been able to fill the gap", he says.
For 2016, Gauteng matrics achieved top results, with an 87% pass rate, the third highest in the country.
Over 37,000 Gauteng learners achieved a bachelor pass.
