A meeting between Gauteng education authorities and Sadtu on Tuesday evening will determine whether hundreds of teachers in Eldorado Park will return to class on Thursday.

Last week the union withdrew its members over allegations of on-going racism at the Klipspruit West Secondary School.  

The move has seen 30 schools in the area severely affected.

Now, Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says he is not ruling out shutting down the schools.

"The one problem still remains teachers that were supposed to be here are not here, they are at the district, when we agreed they must be back here."

Into the second week, the teachers gathered, demanding an audience with Lesufi on an array of issues, including addressing the plight of black teachers.

With more schools affected at Eldorado Park secondary 30 teachers did not report for duty, the school management has told the SABC that very few classes are going ahead with teaching.

Sadtu says the meeting is crucial to chart a way forward.
