CONCERNING THE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE IN THE NW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.
21 October 2019 4:34 p.m.
Dear Portfolio Committee on Basic Education,
Good day Committee members.
Kindly intervene on this matter of the organizational structure of the NW Education Department's implementation. The structure was long signed but its implementation is just focussed at the top where taxpayer's money is misused. They have currently appointed three DDGs when schools at grass-root level don't have administrative and general assistants.
There is a shortage of subject advisors and circuit managers when at the top they are focussing on appoibnting their friends in the positions of chief directors, directors, deputy directors. What are they directing when we need to have effective schools that are clean and their administrations being superbly run?
It is clear that they do not want to implement the signed organizational structure because it does not favour some of their friends and they want it to fail.
We have a trust in you that you will assist as soon as possible. Lot of taxpayers' money is lost due to unnecessary positions that are very redundant and delaying service delivery, like the so-called sub-district managers. Schools end up having to wait more than 2 weeks for this incumbent to sign when only the principal, the circuit manager and the district director have to do so to ensure that learners are not left without the teacher for too long. Please intervene.
Your emailed correspondence if received and noted with thanks. As a national committee, I would advise that you raise the matters with the North West Provincial Education Department for assistance, failing which, you are welcome to re-direct your concerns to our office (including all correspondence between yourself anf the Provincial Education Department).
