the incident was a clear "abuse of power"
yeah because the pupil in this case showed clear signs of respecting her authority and letting her slap land

retarded lawyer, the only power she abused was the power of hand-eye-coordination

Case against Sans Souci teacher who slapped pupil should be struck off court roll - lawyer

A criminal court is not the right forum to judge Sans Souci Girls' High School teacher Clarissa Venter for slapping a pupil, her defence attorney said outside the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Lawyer William Booth maintained that the common assault case should be struck off the court roll, which had "enough cases of a serious nature", after the State requested a postponement to complete its investigation.

The request for a final postponement was granted and Venter will be back in the dock on June 14.

The teacher also faces an Equality Court matter for which Booth believed there were no grounds.
Ah, she's speshul!

Hmm, one slap? Hopefully they award the teacher two more. If you want to be equal, so be it.
Teacher:
1 slap

Learner:
1 Accuses teacher of swearing at her,
2 shoves desk against teacher's legs,
3 shoulders teacher
