Font size: -+

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC or Commission), visited Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke, on Thursday the 10th of January 2019, following outrage over widespread allegations of racial segregation at the School.
 
The Commission yesterday met with North West Education MEC, Sello Lehari, and his team at the School. The Commission will be working closely with the Provincial Department of Education in conducting an investigation into the allegations.
 
Concurrent to this investigation, the Provincial Department of Education will establish a task team to deal with transformation at the school and has invited the Commission to participate in the task team.
 
The Commission is deeply concerned that instances of discrimination and related intolerance continue to take place within the school system. Schools are platforms for teaching and learning not only a formal curriculum but also fundamental value systems. While this trend in schools remains highly concerning, we should take this as an opportunity to engage on transformation and foster greater awareness.
 
 

Issued by the South African Human Rights Commission
