East London - An Eastern Cape teacher has been filmed beating a Grade 10 pupil, the Daily Dispatch reported on Wednesday.

She and the rest of the class were beaten with a stick when they failed to produce maths homework on 8 May, the pupil at Ndabankulu Senior Secondary School, in Butterworth, told the newspaper.

In the video, the Dispatch heard the teacher swearing at the pupil.

The girl's parents had reported the matter to the school.

The Dispatch reported that school principal Vuyani Thongo had refused to comment about what he called a "sensitive matter".

Education spokesperson Loyiso Pulumani reportedly said corporal punishment was a crime and advised parents to report it to the police.
