In the last episode of When Things Fall Apart, we examined the issue of educational inequity and the wave of student protests that took place in post-Apartheid South Africa. This week, we explore Equal Education, a movement that seeks to develop a standard for basic education across South Africa. We speak to Ntuthuzo Ndzomo, the Deputy General Secretary of Equal Education about the fundamental challenges to the provision and implementation of an equal basic education standard across the country. We also look at the role of media activism and its importance in a fragile environment. Produced by Meagan Currie, Shua-Kym McLean, Ziyana Popat, and Bobby Zipp, with the help of Katherine Kwok.
