Government has said that South Africa's leaders are exercising their democratic right of choice when choosing a school for their children.
JOHANNESBURG - Wednesday is the last day for late 2017 online applications to secure places for children in Gauteng public schools.
The Gauteng Education Department is urging parents to book a spot for their children before the end of the day.
It will not be processing any admissions in January.
The department says online applications help with planning and procuring school materials.
This will be done in accordance with the number of pupils registered on the system.
