Equal Education apologises to Minister Patel for undue criticism, arising from an incorrect 24 November news report published by Independent Media.
Equal Education is dismayed to see Minister of Economic Development, Ebrahim Patel, apparently misleading workers at the Cosatu Congress, by hailing the youth wage subsidy, when the only two pieces of published academic research since it was adopted in South Africa tell the opposite story.

This video documents some of our efforts in making sure the Norms and Standards are implemented both through the Michael Komape Campaign and the Sanitation Campaign in Gauteng. It also gives perspectives from teachers, parents and learners who have to use these schools with poor infrastructure. The video also contains interviews from our organisers and staff members who have been integral in the Norms and Standards Campaign.
We endorse the calls made by students of Wits University, Rhodes University, University of Fort Hare, the University of Cape Town and others: #FeesMustFall #EndOutsourcing #DecolonisationNow
Today (7 October 2015) EE members in Limpopo will be picketing the Limpopo Education Department in demand of the provinces Norms and Standards implementation plans that were meant to be published along with other provincial plans on the 12th of June this year. What Limpopo has published thus far is not a plan but rather a User-Asset Management document. The Minimum Norms and Standards for School Infrastructure established a legally binding commitment on every province to provide the Minister with their implementation plans by 29 Nov 2014.
