JOHANNESBURG - The ANC Women’s League has welcomed Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi's stance on racist incidents at schools.

A geography teacher at St John’s College was found guilty of making racist and derogatory statements- and on Friday agreed to resign from the school.

In another incident classes were disrupted at Klipspruit west secondary school as parents allegedly demanded a coloured principal instead of a black one.

The women’s league says all forms of discrimination must be eliminated in the country.

Secretary general Meokgo Matuba said, “We are disappointed at the whole behavior because we believe schools are supposed to be centres for learning and not a place where our children are subjected to racial discrimination.”
