Media Advisory issued by the SA Human Rights Commission to invite members of the media to its Consultative Workshop on the Charter on Basic Education Rights

Tuesday, 17 July 2012

The South African Human Rights Commission and its stakeholders invite members of the media to their consultative workshop which will deliberate on issues relating the obligations and indicators in the Charter on Basic Education Rights.

The workshop will be held on Thursday, 19 July 2012, at the Pan African Parliament, Gallagher Estate in Midrand, from 09:30-16:20

Participants attending the workshop will focus on reaching agreement on the nature and description of the indicators for monitoring the fulfillment of the right to basic education.

The Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, will deliver the key note address at the workshop.

Expected to participate at the workshop are Members of Parliament, Stakeholders such as Provincial MECs of Education, Representatives from the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and Office of the Minister for Monitoring and Evaluation.

In its task of monitoring the realization of the right to basic education in South Africa, it has become apparent to the Commission that there is a lack of a common and consolidated national statement of the scope and content of the right to basic education, or conversely, the scope of obligations to realize the right.
Members of the media are also advised that a media briefing will be held from 10:50-11:20 and those wishing to attend the workshop are requested to submit their details for accreditation by Wednesday, 18 July 2012 at 16h00 to vmoaga@sahrc.org.za/vinmoaga@mtn.blackberrry.com.
