Corporal punishment

Corporal punishment has been illegal in South Africa since its prohibition in 1996. Nonetheless, incidents of physical abuse of learners by educators in South African schools persist, often going under reported and inadequately addressed. SECTION27’s ongoing efforts to promote the right to education reveal the need for better reporting. To address this, we’ve created a comprehensive manual to guide learners, parents, and educators in the reporting process.
