Armed Guards, Lawyers - South African School Race Row Escalates

The Eastern Cape Department of Education has begun investigations into alleged segregation of pupils at King Edward High School. This follows social media outrage over a viral photo showing black pupils in a class at Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke sitting separately from their white classmates. A teacher at the school who was suspended has consulted lawyers, and there has been conflict between parents and armed guard at the school.
