Equal Education holds budget speech picket

On Tuesday, 26 February 2013, at 15h00 Equal Education held a picket outside Parliament. The picket occured the day before Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan delivered his budget speech on Wednesday. The picket will drew attention to the Department of Basic Education’s (DBE) under-expenditure on the Accelerated School Infrastructure Delivery Initiative, also known as the ASIDI grant, and its failure to eradicate 49 mud schools in the 2011/2012 financial year. We called on Minister Gordhan to provide oversight to the national Department of Education and the Eastern Cape department in order to improve spending.
