The EELC was set up by Equal Education (EE) in response to the increasing need to make use of the law and litigation in the broader struggle for a a better and more equal education for all. The EELC was set up as an independent Trust, called the Equal Education Law Centre Trust. Education: A key societal issue The EELC was established in January 2012 for the purpose of engaging in public interest litigation and advocacy relating to education in South Africa. The clinic has been established in response to South Africa’s ailing education system, which remains characterised by poor quality and widespread inequality and which impacts most severely on historically disadvantaged communities. This reality is a far cry from the vision of our constitution - which protects the right of everyone to a basic education. It is widely accepted that education is key to transforming society and in ensuring that all people are empowered to participate meaningfully in all facets of society. The provision of an adequate and equal education is an end in itself, but is also key to the realisation of all other rights.
