Keeping learners in school: What are the options?, 31 May

Keeping learners in school: What are the options?, 31 May

The Catholic Parliamentary Liaison Office, in collaboration with the Catholic Institute of Education and Inclusive Education South Africa, held a roundtable discussion to address the crises facing our education system that fails to retain more than half of its learners at the end of their schooling. Close to 60% of youth that enter the schooling system drop out without any school leaving qualification and little prospect of finding meaningful employment. The main speakers were: the Director of Inclusive Education, Ms Robyn Beere; Principal of Tafelsig High, Ms Ruschda O’Shea and Country Director of DVV International, Mr Farrell Hunter, they explored the complex issues that contributes to huge numbers of youth dropping out and offered, with the contributions from the participants, possible solutions to stem the drop-out rate.
