Education spokesperson speaks on impact of blackouts on learning

As South Africans face long stretches without electricity due to Stage 6 load shedding, the education sector is concerned about the impact on pupils and learning.

Power outages were particularly disruptive to learning that was reliant on technology. Basic Education spokesperson, Elijah Mhlanga said that It especially affects the delivery of technical and digital-based subjects, which means the move towards a digital era in schools is being derailed.

Some schools have also moved to use smart boards, so those lessons are disrupted during load shedding.
