"Pursuant to a settlement agreement concluded between the Minister of Basic Education and the organisation Equal Education, the Minister published draft Regulations Relating to Minimum Uniform Norms and Standards for Public School Infrastructure on 8 January 2013, inviting public comments. The Department received 35 comments from a variety of education stakeholders.

The comments were mainly critical of the Regulations. In the light of the criticism expressed by commentators, the Minister decided to have the Regulations redrafted. To accommodate the redrafting process, a new settlement agreement was concluded with Equal Education on 11 July 2013 which was made an order of the court.

In terms of the new agreement, the Minister agreed to publish the Regulations by 12 September 2013 for a second round of comments That date was honoured, and the draft Regulations Relating to Minimum Uniform Norms and Standards for Public School Infrastructure were published for public comment under General Notice No. 932 in Government Gazette No. 36837 of 12 September 2013".
