Hotline set up for Limpopo textbook issues
Basic Education Dept says this will help to avoid all textbook related issues in Limpopo.
In a wide-ranging interview with Eyewitness News , Motshekga urged schools to alert the department if the requested textbooks don't arrive.
She briefed the media in Polokwane yesterday, revealing that one of the matric exams this year was leaked.
Motshekga says textbook shortages have nothing to do with the department's budget, but rather with outdated information and communication problems.
"Some schools always have to ask books from them because they're not on your ordering list."
She says in some cases, books that are meant to last three years are being taken home by pupils and aren't returned.
Limpopo MEC for Education Ishmael Kgetjepe says just over 40 percent of the provinces textbooks have already been delivered to warehouses and will be distributed to schools next year.
