Free lunchtime talk: Equal Education

You are invited to a free Lunchtime Soapbox talk entitled:

Equal Education – Strategies for activism in education by Brad Brockman

Brad’s presentation will outline Equal Education’s approach to activism around quality and equality in basic education, using the examples of campaigns the organisation has run over the past 2 years on issues of school infrastructure, learner attitudes and teacher post-provisioning.

Started in 2008, Equal Education is a community and membership-based organisation. It advocates for quality and equality in the South African education system and engages in evidence-based activism for improving the nation’s schools. The organisation is a pioneer in youth leadership development.

Equal Education’s campaigns, based on detailed research and policy analysis, are aimed at achieving quality education for all. Led by young activists, Equal Education works together with communities, schools, teachers, principals, learners, parents, academics, researchers and the government. Equal Education offers a new way for people to participate in the democratic system and bring change to education and society.

A delicious and affordable (from R35) brown bag lunch will be on sale at the venue.
