An image showing black pupils apparently segregated from white pupils has generated outrage in South Africa.


               
           
               
                   

The Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke in the North West region of South Africa is under probe by the local education department for alleged racism against its black students.


               
           
               
                   

The probe follows outrage that has been expressed over an image taken in one of the school's classrooms where white pupils, aged between four and five, are made to sit together at a table and the black pupils at another table in the corner of the room.


               
           
               
                   

The children's class teacher had shared the image on the school's WhatsApp group to show parents how the first day back was going.


               
           
               
                   

According to a report by the African News Agency (ANA), spokesperson of North West education department, Freddy Sepeng, disclosed on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 that the school would be investigated.


               
           
               
                   

He said, "We are not sure whether is fake or real. If it is real we are condemning it. We say not during this era. We cannot really accept it.
