Following tense protesting and vandalism outside of Hoerskool Overvaal, Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi has pushed for the issues concerning the school to be resolved as quickly as possible.
Fearing for the safety of the learners, Lesufi expressed that no child should go to school in fear.
This follows protest action by the EFF in Gauteng to the alleged exclusion of English speaking pupils at the school.
Hoerskool Overvaal won the right to not administer the Education Department’s policy to allow 55 English speaking pupils entrance into the school, whilst the matter was present in the Gauteng High Court.
Protesters, however, believe the matter to be discriminatory against non-Afrikaans speakers.
Police formed a human barricade along with private security on Wednesday outside the school, while the SAHRC has assured parents that the children are safe within the walls of the school.
ANC and EFF members are angry over the Hight Court's ruling this week that the Education Department acted unlawfully when it ordered the school to admit 55 English-speaking pupils.
Despite violent scenes on Wednesday and 10 arrests, protesters say they're not afraid of the police.
Protesters have taken to throwing petrol bombs at police vehicles outside of the school, ignoring calls from Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi that have urged protesters to think about the safety of the children attending the insitution.
