Taking Equal Education into the classroom: EE compiles a book on teaching and learning

Taking Equal Education into the classroom: EE compiles a book on teaching and learning
Monday, 29 June 2015

Taking Equal Education into the Classroom' is a collection of research papers and presentations. They focus on, and tackle, many of the systemic issues that undermine the reception of quality teaching by all learners in South Africa's public education system. While the vast majority of EE's campaigns have been directed at school infrastructure, this collection shows that EE has had its sights on the pedagogic relationship - that of the learner and teacher in the presence of content - since 2010. While EE takes an empathetic view of teachers - very often trying school and external conditions stack the odds against educators performing adequately - it holds the view that much improvement is needed. This book marks the beginning of a sustained focus on the sphere of teaching and learning

We have been repeatedly vocal in our stance that it is unlawful to deny teenagers access to HIV preventative measures and we have always wanted condoms to be distributed, in an easy, discreet and accessible manner, in schools. This should be coupled with comprehensive, age-appropriate sex education.
