Equal Education (EE) expresses its strongest possible concern at the events that took place surrounding last night's State of the Nation Address (SONA).
President Jacob Zuma will be giving his 7th State of the Nation address on 12 February. This is also the second SONA under the national assembly that was constituted last year after elections. As Equal Education we are hoping that the President will address the following important issues: The implementation of the Minimum Uniform Norms and Standards for School Infrastructure; the schooling system's poor learning outcomes; the problem of youth unemployment and failure of the Youth Wage Subsidy.
The Students Representative Council of the Durban University of Technology has apparently taken a "decision" that "Jewish students, especially those who do not support the Palestinian struggle, should deregister".

Equal Education (EE) will be picketing the Public investment Corporation (PIC) to demand that there be an end to state-sponsored financial support of racial and economic segregation in our schools. EE will demand that the entirely state-owned PIC divest itself from Curro Holdings.
