Please see a seminar invitation forwarded by the South African Education Research Association (SAERA).

"The Seminar will discuss critical issues relating to education and inequality. It will consider the Brackenfell High School conflict and how it challenges efforts at social cohesion in and through education.

It will further reflect on the 2020 Grade 12 results and how they starkly illustrate inequities in learning outcomes between rich and poor schools and learners.

Attention will also be paid to how the COVID-19 pandemic has deepened and exacerbated global, regional, national inequities in public education and how policy responses reveal a narrow focus on education content, undermining the affective dimension of teachers’ work and learner needs.

In this Research Seminar, Professor Yusuf Sayed (Sussex & CPUT) in conversation with Professor Crain Soudien (CEO: HSRC) will discuss challenges in realising equitable and quality teaching and learning in South Africa during times of crises and disruptions.
