Photo of black, white students segregated in South African classroom draws fire

South Africa teacher suspended over class 'split by race' Laerskool Marble Hall accused of refusing black pupils admission

At Curro Roodeplaat School in 2015, for instance, school kids were divided by race as they made their way out of a bus during a school trip.

They said wealthy black families felt they had no choice but to send their children to white-dominated private schools, where their children would be subjected to racism. My suggestion? This school must be shut down, the parents of those learners in the corner must get a formal apology and the teacher must be fired!

In the photo, a small group of black children are sitting at a separate table away from the white children.

Wednesday was supposed to be a joyful occasion for parents as their children started the new school year.

The chairman of the school's governing body, Jozeph du Plessis, said the teacher thought she was helping the students feel at ease on their first day of school, by seating them with children from their own racial group.

Asked how she felt about the incident, she said she hoped her five-year-old child was still too young to have noticed what was going on.

The mom added she was not sure how to move forward at the moment.

On Thursday, the department announced that the teacher had been suspended, pending the outcomes of the investigations. The school is being contacted and this article will be updated once its response is obtained.

In the other pictures, children of different races can be seen interacting with different pupils in different seats.

Some white parents have removed their children from the school because they fear for their safety.

"All I saw was messages from the white parents saying 'dankie, dankie" [thank you on WhatsApp] but no one was saying anything about the separation of the learners'.

The school responded to the allegations, stating that it was all a misunderstanding and that the children were separated based on whether they were Afrikaans or English-speaking. We can not allow the future of the children to be a risk because of a racist agenda.
