Pretoria High School Faces Fury After Black Pupils Are Told To ‘Straighten Hair’

Pretoria Girls High School is facing a furious backlash after allegedly instructing black school pupils to straighten their hair.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi is due to visit the school on Monday to address the controversy as more than 4500 people signed a petition calling for his intervention.

#StopRacismAtPretoriaGirlsHigh was trending on social media on Monday. Videos and photographs of pupils protesting at the school‚ one of the pupils sporting an afro‚ went viral over the weekend.
