Johannesburg - The newly formed National Education Crisis Forum is planning to host a national convention involving all interested parties next month to discuss the country’s higher education funding conundrum.

Dikgang Moseneke, former deputy chief justice, who is one of the nine conveners of the forum launched on Thursday at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg, said they hoped to bring together education stakeholders – including civil society groups, businesses, students, parents, government officials and university staff – at the convention.
