SADTU strike forces the suspension of school exams in KwaZulu-Natal

# Parents in KwaZulu-Natal are frustrated over teachers’ union SADTU’s strike as it forced the suspension of year-end exams for Grades 8 to 11 in the province’s public schools. SADTU demands the provincial Education Department pay schools their full budget allocations. The department has not given a timeline for payment. While SADTU has halted their picket, parents have decried the possible impact of the strike on their children. They are calling for a resolution that does not compromise learner’s education.
