Addressing the questions:

  1. What quality criteria do school leaders in ESD (Education for sustainable development) schools recognise as contributing to high quality in education? What is the relative importance of each quality criterion according to the school leaders?
  2. Are there any differences in the quality of school organisation between ESD active schools and reference schools as well as variation of aspects in the ESD active schools?
  3. How can the quality of transformative ESD implementation be understood?
  4. How the notion of sustainability is conceptualized within early childhood education discourses and how it is manifested in early childhood curricula?
  5. Transformation (decolonisation) has been one of the most talked-about subjects in higher education. Whose responsibility is it to transform higher education and can this transformation ensure the realisation of a just and equal society?
  6. Most education systems in third world countries were caught unaware by COVID-19. Access to education became a matter of who has access to technology. What lessons can South Africa learn from this and what impact does COVID-19 have on the future of education systems which are already unbalanced? What can be done to close these gaps?
  7. What policy changes need to be effected to bridge the gap between basic and tertiary education, especially among disadvantaged learners?
  8. How can future education be structured in a manner that enhances an investment in all considering human diversity and the needs of the 4IR?
