Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi intends to prioritise Early Childhood Development Centres (ECD) in his second term, by moving them from the Department of Social Development to GDE.
“The first priority of this political term is ECDs, which will migrate from the department of social development and come to the department of education.
Lesufi was outlining his plans for education in the province at a consultative meeting, which sought to share the priorities of his new term at the Nasrec Expo Centre in Johannesburg Friday.
“If we cannot get ECDs right, we will not get education right,” he said.
“We are building a very strong foundation that will allow the education of Gauteng to prosper, as well as allow the education of our children to be one that we will be proud of,” Lesufi said.
