A Proposed Plan for a Social Pedagogy Alternative in the Time of Pandemic

A Proposed Plan for a Social Pedagogy Alternative in the Time of Pandemic

Preamble

We are educators in the post-school education sector across South Africa. We have come together in various fora over the past month to discuss principles, practices and possibilities for learning and teaching in South Africa during and after the COVID-19 Global Disaster. We are committed to our students, to our institutions, our communities, to developing critical intellectual cultures and to equal education as an essential service. 

The analysis, principles and proposals put forward in the sections below reflect these values and have in mind ALL students, especially marginalised students, teaching staff and administrators, parents, and communities, and aim to redress the structural inequities in our post-schooling system.This analysis and proposal builds on scenarios put forward by the Black Academic Caucus and the C-19 People’s Coalition Post School Working Group. In offering this proposal, we seek the input and feedback of students, teaching and administrative staff, unions, parents and communities as we look forward to its further development and implementation.
