VIDEO: Zero Dropout Campaign unpacks the NIDS-CRAM data

The recently released findings from the NIDS-CRAM Wave 4 report shows how disrupted schooling has affected access to school meals, learning trajectories, and gaps in learning. The survey found that 57% of children had missed a school meal in the last seven days. One of the expected long-term effects of Covid-19 disruptions to education is an increase in school dropout worldwide. This is of deep concern in South Africa, where rates of dropout are already high. Merle Mansfield, Programme Director of the Zero Dropout Campaign discussed this issue on SABC News Full View.
