A teacher has found himself in serious trouble after he physically assaulted a female student all in a bid to discipline her.
The teacher recorded fighting the student
A school teacher overstepped his authority recently after he was filmed in a 'fight' with a female student over an incident.
In the clip, the teacher could be seen trying to use a stick to discipline a student which she rebuffed. However, the teacher took matters to another level by forcefully assaulting the girl while she screamed in pain.
The teacher is said to be under investigation. The incident happened at Umdlamfe Secondary School, Eskhawini in Richards Bay area of South Africa.
Read reactions from people who watched the video below:
Martin Van Der Vyver: I'd also love to kick that students teeth in that's laughing in the background. That teacher would be in the local mortuary already.
Mahlaule Goodman Ronny: I'm told the incident happened in Umdlamfe Secondary School, Eskhawini in Richards Bay. The matter has been reported to officials. Thank U.
Katlego Jubilant: This is ruthless. How dare he put her through so much trauma then when this girl child no longer goes to school we will say she doesn't want education but what's the point when the same place where a child should be receiving education happens to destroy that child?
Jackie Stanford Griessel: Listen not even when corporal punishment was legal would a male teacher hit a female pupil like that. There were rules. You were not allowed to hit females on their back side and you may not lift the rod past your shoulder etc. So what I am saying that even then this would have been illegal. There were also rules about the thickness and length of the rod.
Tanja Rabie Jacobs: I hope the girl is ok though. I mean he beated her really badly. Those screams of her you could hear she was in pain. I just dont get why he would beat her like that and with a stick.
