How much of a problem is inequality in education, exacerbated in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), still in South African society?

This question came under the spotlight at the most recent Social Justice Café at Stellenbosch University (SU), an initiative created by Prof Thuli Madonsela, Chair in Social Justice in the Law Faculty of SU.

The aim of the café is to engage with young people on social justice issues and human rights-inspired democracy and action for inclusion, rooted in the UN Sustainable Development Goals and National Development goals, with a view to harnessing the youth dividend in ending poverty and reducing inequality by 2030.
