Basic Education Handbook


Legal literacy is an essential tool of rights-based struggles. Legal literacy seeks to empower people and communities without any formal legal training to know and understand the law and its impact, so that they can engage and apply the law in a manner that improves the quality of their lives. This is the purpose of the Basic Education Rights Handbook. It aims to empower communities, school governing bodies, principals, teachers and learners to understand education law and policy, and to know when learners’ rights have been violated and what steps are required to protect those rights. For copies please send an email to info@section27.org.za. Free of charge for schools. For corporates and individuals, we request a small donation of R150 to cover printing and shipping costs. Please email us for information.
