[video=youtube;eTMq-iew7n8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTMq-iew7n8[/video]A Lenasia South Secondary School teacher has been filmed slapping a child who allegedly disrupted class.
Following an enquiry from TimesLIVE‚ the department has confirmed the teacher will now face a disciplinary process.
“We condemn any form of assault of learners in schools as corporal punishment is outlawed by the constitution of the country‚” said Gauteng education department spokesman Steve Mabona.
“The department can confirm that it will be conducting a disciplinary hearing against the educator. The date still needs to be confirmed‚” he said upon further inquiry.
A video of the incident has been shared on Facebook and shows the teacher hitting the pupil before forcibly ejecting him from the classroom.
The incident is said to have happened on Monday at the Johannesburg school.
In the footage‚ the teacher can be heard shouting at the pupil‚ demanding that he hand over his cell phone.
The boy responds: “Ma’am‚ I don’t have a cell phone.”
The unidentified pupil is then manhandled by the teacher while the rest of the class watches.
