The challenges faced by educators and schools in informal settlement areas
Learners, educators, parents, and families in informal settlement areas face many challenges. Living in dwellings in informal areas is often detrimental to the well-being of learners. Three aspects need to receive attention in this regard, namely firstly, the environment, secondly the challenges of education, and thirdly a theological evaluation. Empirical research at a Primary School near Phase 7 in Mangaung highlights the challenges faced by learners and educators in informal settlements. The church also needs to reach out to children and educators as Christ did. Empowering the poor, especially the poor child, is essential for the church.
