PORT ELIZABETH – Parents in Port Elizabeth’s northern areas say they have lost all patience trying to get better education for their children.
They say they have had enough of years of empty promises from the education department.
They are warning they will intensify protests if nothing is done to address their demands.
For the first time since their protests began, parents were joined by pupils in school uniform.
But Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga says plans are in place to deal with the issues in the area.
The minister says the department will also look to the private sector for assistance as it works to clear backlogs and put parents at ease.
