Learners at the George Khoza High School in Dobsonville, Soweto were told to go home on Wednesday.
Teachers affiliated to South African Democratic Teachers' Union (SADTU) were not at work as they were participating in the mass action against e-tolling and labour broking organised by Cosatu.
One learner at the Immaculata High School in Diepkloof told Eyewitness News that some teachers did not show up for work.
"We had to go home because there's nothing going on here."
Parents of students at the Khoza High School expressed great frustration with the lack of teachers, "One of the representatives from the school told the children there would be no school today."
One mother whose child attended a primary school in Soweto said teachers at her child's primary school are not participating in the strike at all.
"They are not supporting strike because the e-toll is creating employment."
