The education system faces several issues that affect teachers, learners and school leaders. It is essential for the various stakeholders in education to be interconnected and interdependent. For that reason, the theme “interconnected and interdependence” was explored in the South African Extraordinary Schools Coalition CoP. This entails all stakeholders involved in education being connected at various levels and are mutually reliant on one another to ensure effective learning and teaching. The CoP presenters focused on interconnected and interdependent in different components of the community, schools and social spheres which enabled diverse views on the topic.
