SCA rules on Ermelo High School appeal

The Supreme Court of Appeals on Friday upheld an appeal by the Ermelo
High School and its governing body against the Education Department in
Mpumalanga. The court ordered that the education department's decision
to withdraw the function of the governing body to determine the
language policy of the school, be set aside. The department's decision
to appoint an interim committee to perform the function of the
governing body in deciding on the language policy was also to be set
aside. The matter relates to a dispute between the department, the
school, and the governing body, about the school's language policy as
far back as 2001. - Sapa
