South AfricanConstitutional Court

AB and Another v Pridwin Preparatory School and Others CCT 294/18

The parents of two children who had been expelled from a private school after a number of unfortunate incidents, particularly in relation to the children’s sporting activities, brought an application for their children to remain at the school. The parents argue that section 8(2) of the Constitution places a positive duty on the school to provide their children with an education. The Supreme Court of Appeal, in a split decision, ruled that section 8(2) should not be applied to private schools. The parents, along with the Centre for Child Law and Equal Education (appearing as amicus curiae), have appealed against this decision.
