The National Professional Teachers Organisation has expressed its disappointment in the escalating levels of violence in South African schools.
This follows after an investigation done by the Human Rights Commission indicated that the violence in South African schools are spiralling out of control.
The President of NAPTOSA Dave Balt said that it has come to that time where everyone needs to work together in order to correct those things that can be corrected.
“NAPTOSA believe strongly the fact that we believe that parents, the community, the school governing body, teachers and learners must combine and try to correct this tragic situation,” said Balt.
The organisation has thanked the Human Rights Commission for their findings in the investigation and supports the recommendations that will be followed.
“We welcome the findings as it really highlights the serious conditions in our schools at the moment,” he said.
