MetadataShow full item record
This study assesses the impact of the Disaster Management Act, Act 57 of 2002 of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the education sector in South Africa, with specific reference to the Protea Northlink College, Cape Town. The study is vital as the education sector was badly hit by the pandemic through regulations designed to contain its spread. Sudden closure of schools countrywide, with no mechanisms in place to assist continuation of teaching and learning, left the education sector in dissaray. The challenge was that many of the schools had to scramble for different systems of ensuring that teaching and learning goes unhindered.
