NW teacher suspended over alleged racial separation in class

One of the kids mothers', during an interview with Open News South Africa, recalled how excited she was to drop off her child at the Grade R class, where all the kids were lined up outside, ready to start the day.

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.

In a statement on Wednesday, the National Freedom Party (NFP) called for the shutdown of the school saying it strongly condemned the racist segregation of learners.

A photo that an elementary school teacher in South Africa took of her classroom to soothe parents nervous about their children's first day of school instead generated shock and outrage after it showed four black children sitting at a small table in a corner, separate from the white children seated at a larger table.

Asked how the situation made her feel, the frustrated mother said she hoped her five-year-old child was still too young to have noticed what was happening.

On Thursday, the department announced that the teacher had been suspended, pending the outcomes of the investigations.

"When a school outing occurs, what you see in the classroom is what you will see on the outing".

"All I saw was messages from the white parents saying "dankie, dankie" (thank you, thank you') on the WhatsApp group but no one was saying anything about the separation of the learners", said the mother who was not named to protect the identity of the child.
