Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke teacher suspended over race controversy

It rapidly spread on social media as it showed about 17 white children sitting around a large table, with four black children around a small corner table in the background.

The class teacher shared the photograph on the school's WhatsApp group.

The outcome was that the teacher allegedly responsible for separating the children has been suspended with immediate effect, reports eNCA.

North West education and sport development MEC Sello Lehari met with school officials at Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke on Thursday morning to discuss a photo that went viral on social media.

She said no one said a thing about the separation of the grade R class, so, she spoke to another parent outside of the WhatsApp group.

Curro Foundation School in Roodeplaat was found guilty of racism after a probe by the Gauteng education department.

Details of the interior are scarce at the moment, but it would be safe to expect a revision of the features list and upholstery. Speaking of which, the updated 7 Series is likely to be available with the same set of engines like the current model.

The office of North West Premier Job Mokgoro says the result of a preliminary investigation at a Schweizer-Reneke primary school will inform the decision on what action needs to be taken against the school.

"The North West provincial government condemns any form of racism in the strongest possible terms and deeply regrets this unfortunate incident 25 years into the democratic dispensation", Ngesi said.

'Rather what becomes painful is that there are black people who still insist that racism has ended and who think that blacks and white can have peaceful relations that do not have undertones of racism.

'This is impossible so long as white people have power, what therefore is needed is to change the existing power dynamics such that black people can have dignity.

This time of year is supposed to be joyous as a lot of kids start their school careers while others return to a higher grade.

'The barbaric conduct displayed by private schools of racial segregating children is equally the same as giving innocent children experience of an apartheid system'.
