Equal Education Reacts To Matric Results
Equal Education released a statement that pointed out a number of factors that contributed to the decline in the matric pass rate.
Equal Education commends the learners and teachers for managing to make it through the toughest year and for achieving good results even though they lost a lot of class time.
In a statement, Equal Education revealed that 2020's academic calendar emphasized several inequality gaps in the Education sector.
The factors which contributed to the decline in the matric pass rate are as follows, the prolonged closure of schools; matrics had to cover the full curriculum in a short period of time; and matric examination paper leaks.
These learners were also supposed to receive textbooks during the prolonged closures of schools, however, that did not take place which caused learners more stress and anxiety.
The fact that most public schools were not able to have Zoom calls for their learners to continue teaching the curriculum whereas all private schools were able to continue learning highlighted the inequality gap.
