The University of Stellenbosch professor of Education, Jonathan Jansen has added his voice to calls to have schools reopen schools on a full-time basis.
Jansen says South African learners have lost out to up to 30% of their learning since the announcement of the national lockdown in March of 2020.
Jansen says reopening schools on a non-staggered basis would give learners access to the much-needed face-to-face learning they have lost out on over the past two years.
