Glitches not a sign of failure
I WOULD like to respond to the letter that was published last week Sunday, titled Lesufi s
“’ method has failed ”.
While I sympathise with the parents whose kids were accepted online but found out
’ that they weren t when they visited the schools, I would like to caution the author not to jump to conclusion that Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi s
’ method has failed on the basis of two cases.
My son was accepted online and the school concurred. Of course there will always be glitches during any transition from an old method or system of doing things to a new one.
I had the privilege of being part of a number of Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) system upgrades in big business over the years. I have never seen one system upgrade that was done without glitches. I don t know Lesufi. I am
’ nevertheless encouraged by his energy and his progressive thinking. Kudos MEC Lesufi. Maropeng Bahula By e-mail
