The FF Plus strongly condemns the apparently blatant racial discrimination of General Smuts High School in Vereeniging who fired sixteen white teachers and administrative staff because the school apparently “could not afford them” but soon replaced them with black staff members.
The retired teachers have used the CCMA to grant a six month salary reward (R852 900.50 in total). The school will have a big impact on its money issues if they must pay this expense.
“The FF Plus will conduct an investigation into further alleged irregularities currently practiced at this school”
“This action is nothing but open racism towards white teachers and it plays a major role in the deterioration of education across the country,” says Kobus Hoffman, FF Plus deputy leader in Gauteng.
“The ANC must rather educate and properly train teachers instead of giving expert teachers the boot just because of the colour of their skin.
“The FF Plus will conduct an investigation into further alleged irregularities that the school is currently faced with in an effort to help parents fight back against a system that harms their children’s future,” said Hoffman.
