THE TEACHER laptop subsidy initiative is unlikely to meet its 2011 deadline to provide all educators with laptops, says the Department of Education (DOE).
The DOE says provincial education departments are at different stages of preparation for implementation, and there is no indication of the number of teachers who have applied and have been approved for the allowance.
The project, which was supposed to have been phased in from 1 July 2009, was only introduced at the end of August, following departmental delays. The project is scheduled to be rolled out over a period of two years. Basic education minister Angie Motshekga said discussions were still being held to secure low-cost resources.
