Learning Guide: Unit 1 - How responsive are schools to the socio-economic challenges in South Africa today?

In this first Unit we reflect on the role that schools are expected to play in society and what the impact is of socio-economic issues like HIV and AIDS, poverty and violence on schools. Are schools doing enough to respond constructively to these social challenges? Your first response may well be that the focus of the school must be on teaching and learning and that social issues must be taken care of by the community, government agencies and non-government organisations.
