Laerskool Marble Hall accused of refusing black pupils admission”

Meanwhile, the North West education department said it would return to the school next week when it received the outcomes of its investigation.

He added: "We are suspending her [the teacher] because we want the investigation to be fair and free".

What happened at the school?

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.

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.

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.

McGluwa claims he was told that the seating arrangements were in part due to the language barriers between the pupils at the Afrikaans medium school.

She and other parents dropped their children off.

Protesters gathered at the school on Thursday morning, many of whom are supporters of South Africa's opposition EFF party according to local media.

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.

To Limpopo now where another primary school has been accused of racism.

The province's MEC for education, Sello Lehari, has since suspended the Grade R teacher and stated that the principal will learn of his fate on Monday, 14 January.

"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", Vuyisile Ngesi, spokesperson in the office of the premier, said in a statement on Thursday.
