'Outcome of Klipspruit West parents meeting to determine school's fate'
MEC Lesufi says he is meeting with teachers union Sadtu later on Tuesday and community leaders on Thursday to explain the plans the department has to return the school to normality.
The school has been grappling with community members rejecting the newly appointed principal along with reports of teacher intimidation and the abuse of pupils.
MEC Lesufi says he is meeting with teachers union South African Democratic Teachers Unio n (Sadtu) later on Tuesday and community leaders on Thursday to explain the plans the department has to return the school to normality.
He says, however, that his meeting with the parents of Klipspruit Secondary School will be the one to determine the school’s future.
“After that meeting with parents, we’ll make an announcement whether we have a school or not. Because in life you either have a school or you don’t have a school. You can’t have both."
The 12 teachers who stayed away from school on Tuesday morning say they were afraid of being intimidated by community members.
