N West teacher who snapped photo suspended, class teacher under investigation
Following Laerskool Schweizer Reneke making headlines after a photograph of the grade R class went viral showing black and white children sitting apart, it has emerged that the teacher suspended was the one who took the photo rather than the one in charge of the class in question.
The Department of Education in the North West has confirmed that the teacher whose class was photographed is, however, still at the school and she has not been suspended.
What has happened, is that the department has confirmed that the teacher involved in the separation of these pupils, has not been suspended as yet, but the teacher who has been suspended is the teacher who took the photos that went viral.Thando Kubheka, EWN reporter
