#ChildrenInMigration: CORMSA DEMANDS EDUCATION FOR ALL MIGRANT’S CHILDREN

#ChildrenInMigration: CORMSA DEMANDS EDUCATION FOR ALL MIGRANT’S CHILDREN

Its #BackToSchool Day 2. Sadly it’s not for everyone!

Many refugees, migrant and asylum seeker children are denied access to basic education due to their or their parent’s documentation status. These grounds for denying young people their rights are unlawful.

The SA Schools Act which regulates admission into public schools states that ‘A public school must admit learners and serve their educational requirements without unfairly discriminating in any way’

We demand #AccessforAll. Read Section27 Chapter 6 Basic Education Rights Handbook for more information on the rights of refugees and migrant workers.

Here what #ChildrenInMigration have to say about learners they know who are being denied access to their schools. #AccessForAll

CoRMSA in collaboration with Joburg Child Welfare hosted a workshop on refugee, migrant and asylum seeker rights. This workshop provided an opportunity for children to have their voices in heard in advocacy work.
