Dugmore calls for probe into appointment of teachers

Western Cape Education MEC Cameron Dugmore has called for an investigation into the procedure of appointing teachers. This comes after a teacher –who was employed at a school whilst he was on parole for attempted rape- raped one of his colleagues.

“This also comes after a caretaker was recently convicted of raping a then seven year-old girl. He has been imprisoned for life for this offence. This is extremely worrying given the fact that even last year another teacher, convicted of a sexual offence was appointed,” says Department spokesperson Gert Witbooi.

Witbooi adds that this is why the MEC has now called for a probe into the appointment procedures of teachers to thighten up on some of the loose ends. “We must make sure that those we appoint to work with our children and teachers, don not poise a danger to our school communities”.
