Watch video of an altercation between the mother of a 13-year-old girl, who was barred from attending class at the Crowthorne Christian Academy in Midrand, surfaced on social media on Monday.
The video showed the grade 8 learner being forcefully removed from class for allegedly wearing hair extensions which the school said were outlawed by the new hair policy.
But the mother of the learner could be heard arguing that her dreadlocks were natural and not hair extensions.
In the video, the mother is seen interacting with a man who appears to be chasing the child away from a classroom. The woman tells the man not to touch her child. Moments later the man can be seen aggressively pushing both learner and parent out of the classroom.
