Democratic Teachers' Union SADTU has commended educators for their resilience and perseverance in ensuring that the Class of 2020 were equipped for their matric exams.
This after Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga announced that the Class of 2020 achieved a matric pass rate of 76.2%.
She says despite the national pass rate
dropping below 80%, it was better than expected following disruptions to the academic calendar amid the coronavirus pandemic.
SADTU General Secretary Mugwena Maluleke says those who did not pass matric must not despair.
The Western Cape climbed one position in the national matric pass rate rankings from fourth to third place with a score of 79.9%.
It also dropped the least for the 2020 school year.
All nine provinces showed a marked drop in pass rate."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/153725880_3985860841466270_8905409506920431729_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&ccb=3&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=5IR0GRLCJBEAX8Zy_o5&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&oh=0071ea6af53b28c6dcd41b5278cc1686&oe=605AAB60"
