Cape Town – The Western Cape provincial education department said it is engaging with Brackenfell High School regarding allegations that it has not had a black teacher work at the school in nearly a decade.

This while the SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) has demanded an apology for black pupils and parents at the school, who felt excluded when a privately-organised matric ball was only attended by white pupils.

The northern suburbs school landed in the spotlight this week when a parent took to social media to decry the matric ball, which was videoed showing only white pupils and their partners.

On the back of the incident, another pupil alleged that racism was rampant at the school, and that it has not employed a black teacher since 1994.

Western Cape Education Department (WCED) Bronagh Hammond yesterday showed stats since 2011 that showed there were two coloured teachers currently working at the school, compared to 40 white teachers.

SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) provincial chairperson Jonavon Rustin said having diversity at the school was important and the school's transformation policy should be relooked at.
Time you get probed too. Can barely find black faces among your provincial committee.

Many a school out there without a single white/indian/coloured/purple staff member.

If people want to arrange a private function outside of school then it's just that, a private function.
I'm sure no white/indian/coloured teacher would willingly go work at a township or some backwater rural school. That's the difference. Maybe this school is also the same in which case there's no problem.

So we're back to coloureds not being black again?
Apparently. But let's face it, they see themselves as being at a higher station than black. Just as apartheid decreed they are.
