Home Education Representative Appointed To the Western Cape Education Council

 In March 2021 Cape Home Educators (CHE) sent out a call for action requesting that home education families living in the Western Cape write to Member of Executive Council (MEC) for Education, Ms Debbie Schäfer.

CHE and a number of concerned parents sent letters to Ms Schäfer. In their letters, home education parents shared their concerns with the BELA Bill and requested that Ms Schäfer appoint a home education representative to the Education Council.

We are happy to announce that Marietjie Ueckermann, CHE chairperson, has been appointed to the Education Council for the period 22 June 2021 to 31 December 2023.

The function of the Education Council is to advise the provincial minister and the Western Cape Education Department in matters relating to education, including laws and regulations.

We extend a big thank you to the parents who have responded to the call for action.
