Description DM2001082803:SAED:SOCIAL:EDUCATION:JUN1955 - The Shut-down On African Education - A black clowd is sweeping over African education today. There is a pincer movement closing in centers of learning. In primary schools that unfortunate Bantu Education Act Arrived! Masses of parents, under the banner of the African National Congress, particularly on the Reef, went on boycott from the fatal day of April 1 by withdrawing their children from schools. And the Government's reply? Numbers of children who did not turn up for school by and on 25 April have been banned from schooling anywhere in the Union. As a result, of a total number of 6,948 pupils coming under this ban, 116 teachers in all have been served with a month's notice to leave school. The school, going population outside school has thus increased immensely. Banned pupils, sacked teachers, half-empty schools. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
