Procedure and principal's race both issues, says Klipspruit community group

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi is expected to meet with parents and teachers of Klipspruit West Secondary School on Wednesday afternoon.

This follows protests over the recent appointment of a black headmaster.

The Soweto school was closed on Monday as residents expressed anger over the race of the new principal.

They also claim that the process of his appointment was flawed.

A community group close to the school says they have taken issue with the appointment process and race of the headmaster.

We've go two sides: It's the process and, yes, it's the colour issue.

Breandan Rousseao, Patriotic Association of South Africa

The Patriotic Association's Brendan Rousseau says the School Governing Body (SGB) is dysfunctional and not adequately informed on procedure.

The district is not assisting the SGBs on proper process of appointing a principal. They are uneducated on how to appoint a principal.

Rousseau claims that the association was called in to help the troubled school last year.

We were called to assist the school were children were out of class and not being taught.

The school is in total chaos. The children are smoking dagga on the stairs. We found packets of mandrax.

 Breandan Rousseao, Patriotic Association of South Africa

It's crazy! The teachers are walking past the children and some of them don't want to teach them. There's no respect for authority.
