'Segregated' classroom photo sparks race row in South Africa

An image circulating on social media which shows black and white children seated at separate tables apparently at Laerskool Schweizer Reneke
Curro Foundation School in Roodeplaat was found guilty of racism after a probe by the Gauteng education department. Some black parents whose children have been refused admission to Laerskool Marble Hall say only black children have been placed on the waiting list.
"As a result, blacks including coloured and Indian people have no option but to take their children to such racist private schools for better education", said Sigudu.
People then pointed out that the children were sitting separately according to race - the white children at a table in the centre of the room, and the few black children at a table in the corner.
The class teacher shared the photo on the school's WhatsApp group.
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.
The teacher was suspended today while the department of education investigates the facts. Whilst my office is 20mins away I sped to collect my child at an instance and remove her from the school immediately.
She revealed that just like all other parents, she dropped her child before being asked to leave the school premises.
The school, in response to this, stated that the image was taken out of context.
In the other pictures, children of different races can be seen interacting with different pupils in different seats.
The GDE, led by Lesufi, concluded that what they had witnessed on the video, showing white children being separated from their black classmates as they hopped off the bus, was a common occurrence in classrooms.
