Call to identify sex pest teachers

2016-08-10 06:00

THE South African Council for Educators (Sace) has called on parents to participate to identify and prosecute teachers implicated in sexual abuse of learners.

Themba Ndhlovu, Sace spokesperson, said the measure aims at enhancing the status of the teaching profession and safeguard the honour and dignity of teachers.

He said clarion calls followed media reports alleging that sex pest teachers were still employed at schools.

“It is imperative that any teacher who is found to have had any sexual relation with a learner should not be allowed to teach.

“People with these tendencies should not be allowed to be teachers. The success rate of dealing with the perpetrators is dependent on all parents, learners and communities,” said Ndlovu, who also said children must be taught to not accept any form of bribes from teachers.
