Curro: We have met all promises to dept of education
MEC Panyaza Lesufi came close to shutting down Curro Roodeplaat after two separate incidents of racism.
JOHANNESBURG - Curro management says it has fulfilled every promise it made to the Gauteng education department following a racism scandal at one of its schools.
First a group of parents sounded the alarm over split classrooms and later footage emerged of a field trip during which children were once again separated, apparently according to race.
Lesufi gave Curro Schools until the end of October to make all the changes.
Curro says its school in Roodeplaat now has a brand new senior management team and a consultant has been hired to implement a new diversity awareness policy.
Other changes include training staff about diversity and transformation and revising its employment targets to make sure more black teachers are hired.
According to the numbers provided by the company, 570 of the 2,400 teachers employed at the school are black.
The education department is yet to comment.
