LISTEN: We need an accelerated catch up plan for basic numeracy and literacy

Our Reading for Meaning Project Lead, Pumza Ndamase, spoke to Metro FM host Sabelo Mtshali about the need for accelerated catch up for basic numeracy and literacy after two consecutives years of disruptions to schooling.

Ndamase explains that we need to meet learners at their level and respond to their needs. Where possible, plans to recover lost learning, through accelerated catch-up programmes, should be tailored to learners’ needs, rather than their age or grade.
