KDC blames school heads for textbook crisis

MOLEPOLOLE: The chairperson of Kweneng District Council (KDC), Motlhophi Leo, says shortage of textbooks should be blamed on school heads because they are the ones responsible for their schools' orders.

Speaking during the ongoing second session of the ordinary full council meeting in Molepolole recently, Leo told the house that the education department in Kweneng was allocated P12.6 million for the 2012/13 financial year to procure textbooks and P2.7 million for stationery.

He said that they delivered textbooks in September last year until January this year.Even though this is the case, Leo told the meeting that orders are done by the school heads, not the council as some people assume, and that any shortages in schools should be attributed to poor stock and needs analysis by respective school heads.
