Teacher Development

Teacher Development Meeting Highlights 20190326

The right to basic education is dependent on various aspects such as initial teacher education, the language policy, support of teachers in terms of professional development, discipline issues and how to deal with them (as can be seen in the various videos that go viral within minutes on social media) as well as having the correct infrastructure and resources in our schools.

Samantha Brener, a lawyer working for SECTION27, a public-interest law centre that uses and develops the law to promote and advance human rights, including the right to basic education, addressed the Teacher Development Community of Practice on this topic. She included insights from Section 27’s recent report on sanitation in schools in Limpopo and how it affects teachers and teacher development.
