Mikro Appeal Court Ruling | Western Cape Government



Mikro Appeal Court Ruling

26 June 2005
Western Cape Education MEC Cameron Dugmore says the department has taken note of the ruling of the Supreme Court of Appeal, which today ruled in favour of the Mikro Primary School.

MEC Dugmore said he was "disappointed", but will be studying the judgement and consult with the department and legal advisors, as well as with the Minister of Education Naledi Pandor.

MEC Dugmore says as always in the past, any further steps to be decided upon, will have to take into account the best interests of the learners.

He reiterated that this action was never an attack on Afrikaans or single-medium schools, but about access to education.
