‘My child is still in an all-black class’
Nomfundo Zimu's child remains in an all-black class at the Curro school accused of racial segregation.
JOHANNESBURG - While government turns its attention to claims of racism in private schools across Gauteng, a parent at the Curro Foundation School in Roodeplaat says she's sceptical of the school's proposed integration plan.
The MEC has announced he will convene a summit in two weeks' time, where a transformation charter for private schools will be presented.
He says until then, he will monitor Curro very closely.
Nomfundo Zimu has a young daughter at the Curro Foundation School and is the author of the original letter complaining of racial segregation.
She says the integrated classes shown to Lesufi on Monday's visit are not an accurate representation of what's happening.
"My child is still in an all-black class. There are only black students in her class. Some of the classes have been changed, I think it's mostly grade R but grade two is still the same way it was."
Zimu says today's meeting between parents and the school should provide clarity.
"Apparently we're going to be discussing how to split the classes. Hopefully it will be a different story."
Meanwhile, Lesufi says since the Curro scandal emerged he's been inundated with similar complaints against other schools across the province.
