Quality education is one of the most powerful ways to give our children a bright future.
But South Africa’s education system is facing major challenges, failing learners across the nation with poor infrastructure, the lack of decent sanitation, including the continued use of pit toilets, and the absence of essential amenities such as libraries, laboratories and sport facilities.
The government’s own statistics show that it is continuing to miss its targets for infrastructure upgrading.
It is time the government:
- Provide all schools with essential resources to teach basic, quality skills in reading and numeracy.
- Work to improve infrastructure by replacing pit latrines in every school with safe, hygienic toilets.
Stand with us in calling on our political leaders to prioritise and commit to ensuring quality education is a reality for all in South Africa.
SIGN TO DEMAND GOVERNMENT TO UPHOLD QUALITY EDUCATION FOR ALL
