So where is the apology to the teacher?

The big question here is, why the f**k does the ANC place a black child, not able to speak Afrikaans or English, in an Afrikaans speaking school. Why should an Afrikaans teacher be forced to bring an unqualified person just to translate so that those children can receive a chance of a better education in their own language?
It seems to me that the ANC does not have an issue with white people. I might have been wrong. The ANC leadership hates their own people. In fact, they hate them so much that they would even consider placing those children in these schools, knowing full well these children will only dumb down. Probably that the reason why the ANC knows they will keep getting support and increase their voter base.
These things with Afrikaans and English schools are nothing else but an attempt by the ANC to keep their voter base uneducated and loyal to the party.
As far as I know grade R is the parents responsibility to enroll and not the Education department.
The parents that started this also has another child in the same school.
The question comes down to how did the photo start?
Was it as simple as the teacher said grab a chair and lets take a photo and the children juts took their own seating?
Anyway I hope they can get enough ammunition to sue all that was involved in this witch hunt.
Teacher Elana Barkhuizen is "overwhelmingly happy" to be back in her Grade R classroom at Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke in the North West, Netwerk24 reported.
She returned to the school on Wednesday last week for the first time since a racial storm erupted after she sent a picture – seemingly depicting racial segregation in another teacher's class – to parents in a closed WhatsApp group on the first day of school in January this year. The photograph depicts white and black pupils sitting at separate desks in the classroom.
A parent – who allegedly holds a grudge against the school relating to school fees – distributed the picture on social media.
This caused a massive uproar which ultimately led to Barkhuizen's suspension.
She claimed that the black children had been seated separately at that time because they could not understand Afrikaans and were given access to a Setswana interpreter.
Other pictures depicting the children mingling openly had also been distributed. Two black parents confirmed Barkhuizen's version of events to Netwerk24.
The question is: What on Earth do 4 Setswana speaking, grade R kids in an Afrikaans speaking class room?
Some idiot is busy destroying their future. The kids will never learn anything. They are doomed to fail from the word go.
In grade R children should be taught in their mother language! It is their right. How far away is the Setswana school? This is so messed up. Their parents failed them. And why did the school accepted this wrong doing? The school failed them too. #NewSouthAfrica #SoSad
Care to explain that, but keep to the exact words you used there, like “first language”?
I'm africa you say? So the Portuguese countries and French countries are teaching in English now?If your first language isn't English or Afrikaans then there are no schools offering education in your home language. And if your home language is Afrikaans, understand that your days of receiving education in your home language are also numbered. The belief in Africa and also in South Africa that education in English is the most advantageous and this is being implemented throughout the continent at the cost of education in any and all other home languages.
Never mind ALL the studies that show that at very least primary education needs to be in the language pupils speak at home.

Also the 1500 odd Zulu first language schools in kzn sort of make your entire post totally laughable...

Umm no... These are first language schools as in the subjects are taught in those languages... Or does that little fact not suit your stupid point? And what about the rest of Africa that doesn't use English... Are they teaching in English now?Ummm hello so what? You can take many different languages AS A LANGUAGE, but the primary language in which all OTHER classes is NOT offered other languages. Seriously only a product of the modern education system in SA would confuse a LANGUAGE class with the language in which all classes are taught.
