Equal Education Calls for South Africa’s Department of Education to Provide Minimum Norms and Standards for Schools
Resource type: News
Equal Education, an Atlantic grantee, has threatened to take South Africa’s Department of Basic Education to court for failing to establish a comprehensive and binding school infrastructure for the country. Doron Issacs of Equal Education is quoted in a Mail & Guardian Online article saying, “While the mud schools in the Eastern Cape are a good example of the problem: most [public] schools in South Africa don’t have school halls, libraries, science laboratories or functional computer labs. There is no document where anyone can go look at exactly what is necessary in a school. There is no standard that will ensure we deal with it.”
