Background

TEACHERS WARNED AGAINST CORPORAL PUNISHMENT, DESPITE GROWING WAYWARD STUDENT BEHAVIOUR

Written by on

The Botswana Teachers Union (BTU) says it has taken a position that teachers should stop applying corporal punishment at schools as they end up being victimized.

Speaking at a press briefing today, BTU Secretary General Agang Gabana said this comes as about 5 of their members are currently before courts for applying it.

He said they have advised teachers to stop corporal punishment as it threatens their jobs.

This is despite incidences of indiscipline at schools where some teachers have previously fallen victims.

Habana highlighted that the safety of teachers should be discussed as they are not safe both within and outside schools.
