education90BusinessLive reports that the Gauteng department of education has reached an agreement with the SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) in terms of which all teachers at 30 schools in Eldorado Park will return to their posts on Thursday.  

This came after Sadtu withdrew its members from teaching in the area when a group of teachers were barred from working following claims of misconduct.  Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi held a meeting with the teachers’ union on Tuesday evening where it was agreed that all teachers from Klipsruit West Secondary School and those participating in a sympathetic withdrawal from about 30 schools in Eldorado Park would return to their posts.  Klipsruit West has faced stoppages in teaching, with residents protesting against the department for its failure to hire a principal at the school‚ where they forcibly removed a black principal.  Security personnel has been deployed to the school for access control and the department has appointed an acting principal with full delegation.  Allegations of racism will be investigated by the SA Human Rights Commission.
