Finweek English Edition - - IN BRIEF -

Gaut­eng’s ed­u­ca­tion MEC Panyaza Le­sufi said that a task team will be con­sti­tuted to probe al­le­ga­tions of racist prac­tices at pri­vate schools across the prov­ince, fol­low­ing a public out­cry af­ter par­ents com­plained about racial seg­re­ga­tion at Curro Foun­da­tion School in Rood­e­plaat, Pre­to­ria. The school apol­o­gised but de­nied that the seg­re­ga­tion was done on racial grounds, but based on lan­guage and cul­tural pref­er­ences − an ex­cuse Le­sufi de­scribed as “sugar-coat­ing the prob­lem”.
