Ashoka Fellow
South Africa
Fellow Since 2014
This description of John Gilmour's work was prepared when John Gilmour was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
John is addressing inequalities in the education system in South Africa by providing better education opportunities to learners from less advantaged communities while bridging the social divide with their counterparts in more privileged schools. While doing so, he is reforming the education system itself by equating high performance in science and maths with the development of the learners’ social-emotional intelligence.
