Equal Education, a South African learner rights organization, calls on the government to address concerns in the Basic Education Laws Amendment Bill before finalization. The bill, aimed at updating basic education laws, faces criticism for potentially criminalizing parents and caregivers who don’t send children to school. Researcher Katherine Sutherland of the Equal Education Law Centre urges the National Council of Provinces to amend specific aspects for a more balanced education law.
