ACDP calls on taxi industry to prioritize the education of South Africa's youth

Media Statement
Cheryllyn Dudley, MP and Whip
 

  • says strike action ill considered

  • opposes actions that compromise education

  • calls for constraint and consideration and for all  in society to work together to ensure examinations are not disrupted 

ACDP Member of Parliament Cheryllyn Dudley today said that, “The ACDP is calling on the National Taxi Alliance (NTA) to prioritize the education of the youth of South Africa. Strike action planned for tomorrow is ill considered and totally inappropriate.”

Learners will be writing their English Paper 2 National Senior Certificate examinations in Home Language and First Additional language tomorrow and many learners rely of the taxi industry to get to school and back.

“The ACDP opposes actions that compromise education and objects to organisations acting at the expense of learners who will need to get to their examinations on time. This is grossly unfair”, Dudley says.

She added that, “The NSC examinations will finish on the 28th of November and the ACDP calls for constraint and consideration and for all of society, to work together to ensure examinations are not disrupted”.
