Equal Education Law Centre senior researcher, Rubeena Parker gives details on the information presented to the committee.

NGOs on Education have briefed the Basic Education Portfolio Committee.

On Tuesday, the Equal Education Law Centre and Section 27 presented research focusing on the state of education and sanitation in Limpopo.

Data inadequacies in Limpopo have been recognised as one of the contributing factors when dealing with sanitation challenges.

The Equal Education Law Centre's senior researcher Rubeena Parker says the issue goes to the core of a child's dignity.

The committee takes the issue very seriously and even invited Section 27 to come and engage directly with them on the report in order to collaborate on a way forward on these issues, not only in Limpopo but in other provinces as well.

Rubeena Parker, Senior researcher - Equal Education Law Centre

Speaking about the research concerning the state of education, Parker says the issues are broader than infrastructure and sanitation.

We look at early childhood development, learner transport, exclusionary admission practices. We highlighted some of the key challenges that cut across all of these areas.

Rubeena Parker, Senior researcher - Equal Education Law Centre

Some of those key findings relate to the inadequacy of tools and mechanisms to allow government departments to coordinate around plans... there is a lack of adequate data across all of these areas.

Rubeena Parker, Senior researcher - Equal Education Law Centre

Without the data, without understanding what the lay of the land is, we are unable to determine how to effectively target targets and we are simply unable to meet them.
