Disciplinary hearing for knife-wielding teacher
The teacher from Marlboro Gardens Secondary School threatened a pupil with a knife.
JOHANNESBURG - The Education Department says Marlboro Gardens Secondary School in Sandton will hold a disciplinary hearing for a teacher who threatened a pupil with a knife.
The department says the teacher was hired by the school governing body (SGB) and not the department.
A video shows the teacher wielding a knife while arguing with a young boy on school grounds.
The department's Oupa Bodibe says, "She's employed by the SGB. Educators are either directly employed by the department or by the SGBs, so the SGB still has to set up a disciplinary meeting."
