The South African Democratic
Teachers Union in the Free State has raised its concerns regarding the increase
violence at Thuto Secondary School.
This follows the stabbing to
death of a learner in the school premises and in full view of other learners.
The union in the province said
the department needs to deploy security in schools especially in hot spot
Sadtu Provincial Secretary
Moloi Mokholoane said this in not for the first time that they have experienced
such witnesses where we even called for the meeting with the department of
Education to highlight this situation.
Mokholoane said that “they were
very much dismissive defending the safety committee’s, which we said they are very
much dysfunctional, and they can’t handle the acts of violence of this
magnitude, because they are not trained as Police Service those particular educators.”
