The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) is holding a two-day public hearing this week.
The hearings will investigate the rising number of school-based violence and the long term impact it will have on the human rights of those affected.
Provincial Education MEC Cameron Dugmore will lead a senior delegation of department officials and give detailed input on ways to deal with the problem.
The hearings will allow schools, teachers and the public at large to have their say.
The public hearings will take place on Thursday and Friday at the City Council Chamber at the(Civic Centre) and will start from 08:30 in the morning.
