A video has made its way on social media which showed a teacher slapping a learner against his head- and, social media users can't figure out why she did it.
Teachers are making headlines this week- first, the North West teacher who 'separated' black and white kids, now, an educator was filmed slapping one of her pupils against the head.
Social media user @Vukile_vee posted the footage on his Twitter page on Thursday. The teacher, who has not been identified, is seen slapping a learner against his head.
Other tweeps were left confused over what triggered the physical attack from the teacher, since it appears as if the child was trying to figure out an answer before he got whacked over the head.
Social media users dubbed the teacher's behaviour unacceptable and called for her to be axed.
Serame Motshoni, who goes by the Twitter handle @SMotshoni, commented: "@DBE_SA let's also suspended this teacher for such behavior to our kids one can tell she was prepared hence the recording."
Mlungisi Ntlebi, @mluzinator, added: "What is wrong with this lady, @Lesufi we cannot have such people teaching our kids sir.. This lady need to be dealt with accordingly."
Take a look at the video below:
As Briefly.co.za reported previously, a North West primary school has come under fire after a photo went viral on social media, which showed black and white grade R learners seated separately in the classroom.
The teacher has since been suspended but the school claimed it was an isolated incident.
