The Western Cape Department of Education said in the last financial year there have been 16 cases of sexual teacher misconduct on learner that have been reported to the department.

Ministerial Spokesperson Bronagh Casey said five educators have been found guilty and the sanction was dismissal in all five cases. 

There were 27 cases of sexual learner misconduct in 2013. 

Casey said we view all cases of sexual misconduct very seriously, and with regard to educators we report them to the council of educators and there may be strapped off the teacher role depending on the nature of the offence.

“And then in terms of the learners each school is required to have a code of conduct which is determined by the school governing body after which a wide process of consultation in line with the SA Schools Act.  This legislation divides offences into minor and serious misconduct, and serious misconduct could warrant expulsion” Casey added.
