Dr Ramphele to attend education expo!

 The African Education Week runs from June 19 to 22 at the Sandton Convention Center.

 An academic and Science teacher, Dr Ramphele is expected to raffle the feathers on matters that concern the state of education in our country.

Recently, she tickled the raw nerve when she made a presentation on the poor conditions of state schools, curriculum and learners having to learn under extreme conditions, amongst others.

The expo aims to bridge the gap for students between studying and entering the world of work.

African Education Week programme director Claire O’Connell says: “We are extremely honoured to have Dr Ramphele at our event. Particularly since the theme this year is ‘Building Future Leaders in Education’, it is very apt for such an inspirational figure as Dr. Ramphele to address the people who directly serve and influence the learners and students of South Africa.

Dr Ramphele’s exceptional example of leadership has been witnessed throughout her formidable career in education, politics, medicine and business.”

Dr Ramphele will be joined by education experts such as Graeme Bloch, independent education expert, Gavin Keller, a veteran education analyst and development activist, Johannes Cronjé, Dean of Informatics and Design Cape Pensinsula University of Technology and Louise van Rhyn, Executive Director of Symphonia, from Career Indaba which attracted more than 4000 learners last year.
