Parents react to Gauteng school closure

There has been mixed reaction amongst parents outside Roodepoort Primary School this morning as teaching will continue at a nearby school.


This, after Gauteng Premier David Makhura in an imbizo on Friday decided to close the primary school, until peace has been restored. 

Teaching and learning has been disrupted at the school since the beginning of the year, as parents accused the principal and her deputies of corruption.  

Parents and community members have been protesting against alleged financial mismanagement at the school. The school has also been the subject of reports of racial division.  

Parents have spoken at the school this morning. Listen below.
