Anele Mdoda has weighed in on the now viral video showing a school teacher slapping a pupil after an argument. She says that it’s not the teacher’s job to teach a child respect.
She was one of many who took to social media to share their thoughts on the video.
She believes that it is not the educator's job to teach pupil's manners, as that is the job of the parents at home. Many agreed with her.
"It’s not a teachers job to teach your child manners, you teach them manners and teachers educate them…”
Briefly.co.za reported on the video showing a teacher losing her cool, and slapping a student at Sans Souci Girls' High School in Cape Town yesterday. The learners in the class have sided with the teacher.
There were of course differing views, and she went on to add that the teacher was also to blame for how the incident escalated.
