Teachers punished for misconduct

The Western Cape Department of Education has confirmed that it has reported 400 cases of misconduct against teachers and other public servants employed by the WCED between the 2013/2014 financial year.

Department’s Paddy Attwell said the department has to report on these cases every year in the annual report. 

Attwell said the department’s 2013/14 annual report showed that assault, attempted assault or threats of assault were the most common types of misconduct and 160 of these cases were recorded.

The number of sanctions given over the year did not necessarily equate to the number of misconduct cases as a teacher could, for example, face more than one charge and receive more than one sanction Attwell added.
