Quick check up of the state of schooling in South Africa. Seems like respect for your teachers is not big at Glenvista High School in Johannesburg after cellphone footage was captured of a Grade 8 pupil assaulting a teacher. The pupil was filmed punching and hitting the teacher with a broom while fellow students can be heard laughing and saying ‘f**k him up’.
Well done to that teacher for remaining calm and not retaliating.
The pupil has since been suspended, but i reckon they should suspend those egging him on as well.
I’d love to hear what the parents of that kid have to say.
