Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi has postponed the online school registration process by a week.
Parents were meant to start registering their children for Grade 1 and 8 from Monday, however, Lesufi received a number of objections including a lawyer’s letter.
Online registration has been used in Gauteng schools for four years now.
Lesufi says he is willing to postpone the process by a week following the threats of legal action to stop the process…
