It seems as if the future of the 2020 academic year is hanging in the balance. With the lockdown period which has resulted in schools closing, many parents including celebs, are deer in the headlights on whether their children will be safe to return back to their classrooms soon.

Recently TV actress Khanyi Mbau and Uyanda Mbuli encouraged the masses to sign a petition for the 2020 academic year to be scrapped. As some children have been utilizing digital platforms to learn, it is no secret that some still do not have access to these online learning materials.

Weighing in on this Kgomotso Christopher said it is time for radios and newspapers to be used as learning platforms for kids. She said not every child is privileged and felt sorry for Minister Of Education Angie Motsekga as she has a tough decision to make.

Many parents have been calling on the department of education to make a cautious decision on the safety of their children before they return to school.
