Staffing and spacing is the biggest challenge that public schools will face when all learners return to school on 24 August. The department is working on a plan to make sure that students are able to social distance in class. 

Grade 12 learners and teachers are back at school, following a one week break. These learners are part of the first grade to be phased in after the break and the spotlight is now on them, as the end of the school year continues to draw close. 

There has been much confusion since the President announced a break for public schools but a government gazette has now been released. It gives a weekly breakdown running from 27 July to 31 August. It shows the weekly return of grades and the tasks that principals and school management teams will have as more learners continue to be phased in.

The Covid-19 budget has slashed it further. Yet schools are essential to the Covid-19 response. South Africa spent R695 less per school learner in 2018 than it did in 2009 if education inflation is taken into account. 

President Ramaphosa's announcement to close public schools for a 4-week break ruffled a few feathers. The Democratic Alliance (DA) is no exception, as it has been in support of the reopening of schools.
