The minister of basic education Angie Motshekga recently shared with the nation that her department was proposing a phased-in approach to the reopening of schools after the coronavirus closures. In the address, she shared that the first group of kids could be back in the classroom on 1 June 2020.
There has been criticism to this date with many saying its too early to send kids back to school while parents stay home. With the minister due to share the finalized dates for the opening of schools this Thursday celeb moms have also weighed in on this matter on social media.
