- One of Durban's top schools got scandalised when a teacher quit her job after she made racist comments
- The school launched an internal investigation into the matter on Friday, 25 August
- The teacher has since apologised to the class in front of which she made the comments
Westville Girls High School lost one of their teachers after a racist incident last week. The teacher - whose identity wasn't revealed - resigned after her own racist remark.
The teacher allegedly used a racist term when she was talking about black students. She resigned on Monday, saying it was in the best interests of the school and the students that she do so.
The school launched their own internal investigation on Friday morning, according to a report by TimesLIVE.
Catherine Raw, the school's principal shared the news on the school's Facebook page.
She stated that the teacher made racist remarks and voiced her own biased opinions on South Africa's political situation.
Raw said the teacher did not only violate the school's code but also created a harmful environment for the students in her class.
The teacher did since apologise to the class but it did not affect the investigation into what she did, which is still ongoing.
Briefly.co.za gathered the KwaZulu-Natal Education Department wasn't available for comment on the matter yet.
