There are few truer but harsher truths than the following:

Life’s mountains neither summit themselves nor suffer any whining from us. And between many daily complaints about the same things flow many opportunities for decisive action. It is very important we choose wisely.

Please read below and support the Stem Cell Research Project in helping the children of our country become better versions of themselves. This is through concerted Early Childhood Development (ECD) education that is focused on language acquisition as well as the acceleration of learning within the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

But is stem cell research not medical terminology?

Yes, it is. However, we are using the play on words to denote what our project is about:

The acronym for the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

A unit or group. To this effect we will take on a limited number of learners to be instructed daily in English as an additional language, over and above providing a range of supplementary STEM activities and programmes for the entire school to participate in.

While we will adopt and support the entire school, only the limited group will be given express instruction in English. They will thus be the research group while their peers will be the control group. The data acquired on the students’ progress from grades 4 through 12 should firmly show the best way forward to resolve the language-in-education quandary in which South Africa has so long found itself. Will the solution be to accelerate the teaching of English to disadvantaged African students as an additional language, while making the effort to develop STEM terminology for African-language textbooks and examinations? Or will multilingual classroom instruction (code-switching and translanguaging), which is currently most prevalent, be enough?
