Gauteng Education to help learners with behavioural problems

sabc nEWS Scissors - Gauteng Education to help learners with behavioural problems

The Gauteng Department of Education says it has identified 21 problematic schools in the province with high rates of bullying.

It was reacting to the death of a 14-year old learner who was stabbed to death inside a classroom at the Thuto Tiro Comprehensive School in Sebokeng in the Vaal on Monday.

Spokesperson Steve Mabona says a programme will soon be finalised to assist learners with behaviour problems.

“Remember we have identified 20-schools which are problematic with ill-discipline, drug peddling, drug abuse and the bullying… and we said we need to have 5 000-of those learners coming from those schools. We have 21-schools which we know they’re problematic, will take them through a programme where there will be professional help just to divert their behaviour; we will guide them on how to behave in a school environment and in the society at large,” says Mabona.
