JOHANNESBURG - While most families are focused on getting uniforms and stationery ready, some are still struggling to get their children placed in schools.

In Pretoria, some parents are demanding placement for their children at Hoerskool Akasia.

They say they have been offered places at a school far from where they live. 

The parents are threatening to fight until admission.
