Gauteng Education MEC Matome Chiloane has expressed concern over a fight between a Grade 9 pupil and a teacher at Glenvista Secondary School in Johannesburg.

A video went viral on social media showing an educator and a student fighting violently and damaging school furniture in the process. Gauteng Education spokesperson Steve Mabona says the department has launched an investigation into the cause of the fight.

“The MEC has indicated that it takes this matter seriously and that the safety of our students and educators and everyone in our environment is a high priority. However, such a lack of discipline will not be tolerated in our schools. “Schools are meant to be centers of development, any other nefarious acts facilitated in any way in and around our facilities cannot be tolerated.”
