According to the allegations, there have been no black teachers at Brackenfell High School in nearly a decade. To add to this, a matric ball was privately organised and only attended by white pupils. The SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) has now demanded an apology for black pupils and parents who felt excluded from the ball.
