Sexual offences by teachers must stop
April 30 th, 2015
Pretoria – The SA Council for Education has met to review its 2014 to 2016 registered educators. Talks focused on prevention of sexual offences against pupils by teachers. The council has received 700 cases of which 650 have been processed and 10 teachers were struck off the roll. The effort is to show vigilance by setting a code of conduct for teachers, including discrimination, verbal abuse, mismanagement and sexual offences. Mpumalanga and Gauteng, for instance, have recorded 348 cases involving racism. Improper discussion inside classrooms or outside class time on school premises, whistling at pupils, indirectly seducing a pupil and making remarks about girls’ bodies and size of their buttocks will not be tolerated.
