Enough excuses for racism say Parents For Change
A member of the Parents for Change group Professor Nuraan Davids says they are not a group disgruntled black parents.
She says that, in fact, they have more white parents than black parents in the group.
A number of parents from Rustenburg Girls’ Junior School have rallied behind its first black teacher who was constructively dismissed‚ claiming that the alleged racism that forced her out was just the tip of the iceberg.
Speaking to John Maytham, Professor Davids says there are concerned about how their girls are being prepared to be in a diverse society.
It was kind of clear that the teachers the schools were employing pretty much look the same and did not reflect the diverse society we find ourselves.Professor Nuraan Davids, Parents for Change
The idea that there is a shortage of black teachers, as some people would like to say, is just incorrect.Professor Nuraan Davids, Parents for Change
Most importantly for us was a growing concern that so many girls at the school felt so displaced.Professor Nuraan Davids, Parents for Change
If you have a child aged 11 who is asking a question like that - can black teachers teach? There is something profoundly wrong, possibly at the home, possibly at the school or both. Something has gone very, very wrong here.Professor Nuraan Davids, Parents for Change
There is no longer an excuse for a school like Rustenburg to continue to say this is going to take time, we need time.Professor Nuraan Davids, Parents for Change
