Kagiso Trust in partnership with the University of Johannesburg’s Faculty of Education hosted the Education Conversations at the University’s main campus. Filled to capacity, the Education Conversations saw young and old engage with the topic Nurturing our Future: Supporting the Transition from Home Life to Formal Schooling in a critical and, at times, controversial manner.
The Big Debate’s Masechaba Ndlovu facilitated the conversation and picked the brains of the audience. Keynote speaker, Professor Leketi Makalela, Head of the Division of Languages, Literacies and Literatures at Wits School of Education (University of Witwatersrand) brought to the fore the importance of teaching in African languages from an early age and Ms Tsakane Baloyi from the Gauteng Department of Education’s ECD Institute acknowledged the concerns and suggestions the audience and keynote speaker raised.
