The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has come under fire for the suspension of controversial South Peninsula High School Principal Brian Isaacs.
A community of teachers and parents organised a march to protest against the suspension, and accused the WCED of derailing their efforts to mobilise last week.
Isaacs was suspended following various allegations including assaulting a learner.
The WCED denied victimising teachers who wanted to organise the march during school hours.
Department spokesperson Paddy Atwell says that Isaacs still faces internal disciplinary action, despite criminal charges being dismissed.
In response, Isaacs says that it is obvious that there is a vendetta against him, and has questioned the department's disciplinary processes.
There's no doubt that there is a vendetta against me. Three sets of disciplinary hearings are running at the same time... It's unheard of.— Brian Isaacs, suspended South Peninsula High School Principal
