On 24 March equalisers who participated in the Concert and March for Quality Education on Human Rights Day wrote letters to the Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, to express their anger and disappointment that she did not attend the event. They asked her why she did not come to receive the memorandum from them at Parliament, and why she has paid so little attention to their struggle for quality and equal education. The deadline of 1 April 2011 for the adoption of Minimum Norms and Standards for School Infrastructure, which the Department of Basic Education set for itself, has now been missed.

The equalisers are expecting the Minister to reply to their letters and Equal Education will be following up with the Department to make sure that this happens.
