Teacher to be suspended after 'accidentally' showing porn on class projector

2014-05-22 10:49

A life orientation teacher who allegedly screened pornography on his class projector by accident has been served with a notice of intention to suspend him.

“We have instituted an investigation into this matter with the view to act,” Gauteng education department spokesperson Phumla Sekhonyane said today.

She said the pupils were receiving counselling.

“We are extremely disturbed by these allegations. The safety of children at our schools is a priority.”

According to a report in Sowetan, the Grade 10 teacher told pupils to busy themselves with work he gave them while he prepared an exam they were to write.

The teacher then reportedly began surfing pornographic sites, unaware that his laptop was still connected to the class projector.

One mother was quoted as saying that her daughter came home terrified as the incident brought back memories of her sexual abuse when she was younger.
