The ANC is considering supplying tablet PCs to public schools, sources have told the Sunday Times.

This would be in a bid to prevent a repeat of the Limpopo textbook crisis, which marred the party’s reputation last year.

According to the report, the idea for putting tablets in the hands of schools came from the ANC’s executive committee lekgotla taking place in Irene.

“It is the easiest way of resolving the textbook issue. In one tablet, you can download a number of books. It is also cheaper. The commission will continue discussing the matter [today], but this was a popular view,” a source at the meeting told the paper.

The proposal will be presented to the lekgotla’s plenary session for possible adoption on 21 July 2013, the paper said.
