Question posted in the General Law category relating to Western Cape
Hello we have been having issues with our high school (Table View High School). We as black students are being maltreated by educators, students, vice principal and even the principal herself. We have all had enough because we are thrown at with bananas and the teachers take no action to defend such situations. The principal calls all black students for a meeting and says that they’re parents are liars and that the black students belong in rural areas. She also goes further to insult all black students and call them hooligans over the intercom. Our blacks boys are not allowed to cut their hair bald, nor are they allowed to have dreadlocks even for traditional reasons. I write to you right now asking for your assistance on the behalf of over 200 students.
