Photo of 'segregated' classroom reopens old wounds in post-apartheid South Africa

The department said the teacher had been suspended with immediate effect.

You can take your kids to the whitest schools in the country but so long as the black majority is poor, your kids will always be reminded that they are black and therefore inferior.

"What seems to have happened at Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke is an absolute disgrace", wrote one of South Africa's prominent black academics, Professor Jonathan Jansen, on Twitter.

It shows 18 White students sitting together, while their black colleagues sat at a separate table in the back of the kindergarten class at Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke in South Africa.

At the same time, McGluwa says both black and white parents he spoke to insist that this was an isolated incident.

She didn't immediately notice who had been placed next to her child as class had not yet begun. In the last three or four years, there have been at least two other incidents involving schools that have been accused of segregating learners based on their racial identity. "We hope that the school staff is ready and willing to address this issue immediately and to make a commitment to change outdated attitudes toward integration".

After the school received complaints about the photo, the parents were sent another image showing their children had been "moved to different seating spaces to ensure they were not separated according to race", according to the BBC.

"They don't want to offer English as a medium of instruction, yet it is a public school meant to teach all races".

"'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", Mr Sigudu added. There are over 10 schools at the township.

One concerned mother told the publication that she and other parents dropped their children off before being asked to leave at around 9am.

A group of parents of white pupils drove over the school fence with their vehicles and took away their children‚ saying they were rescuing them from angry protesters.

Governing body chairperson Jozeph du Plessis released a statement after a chaotic day at the school, which saw a protest by members of the community, including some EFF members, and a visit by provincial government officials.
