A state-of-the-art school built for children with special needs in Gauteng stands empty.
Where there should be the sound of children playing, there is silence. Where there should be learning, there are empty classrooms. Where there should be teaching, there are blank chalkboards.
This is the situation at the Nokuthula Centre and Special School in Lyndhurst, Johannesburg. Nokuthula is a “LSEN school”, meaning it caters for “learners with special education needs”.
