Parents evict ‘shoddy’ principal

FED-UP parents kicked Booysen Park Primary School’s principal out of his own school today (January 27) for shoddy performance, saying they would be running the school from now on.
Furious parents chased Yusuf Samuels off the grounds when they flocked to the school in droves during a second day of protest action over a shortage of teachers.
Governing body chairman Henry Casling told parents: “As far as we are concerned, this school does not have a principal, until we decide on a way forward.”
The governing body asked Samuels to leave and fetch district education development officer Douglas Rwentela.
Rwentela was held hostage by parents for three hours on Wednesday and was released only after he promised to return yesterday morning with solutions to the teacher shortage. However, he failed to arrive.
