EPISODE 5 : Education

In this episode we ask: Can we use the coronavirus crisis to build a more efficient and equitable education system going forward? Can we seize the moment to close the gaps in essentials like clean water and innovations like online learning? Or will we just fall back into old patterns that stifle the life chances of so many young South Africans? To get insights on these questions, John Perlman spoke to Professor Mmaki Jantjies is an associate professor in information systems at the University of the Western Cape and Dr Nic Spaull who is a senior research fellow at the University of Stellenbosch.
