Respect for the teaching profession has diminished badly- Lesufi
Once again videos showing violence in schools are going viral on social media.
The question that has been raised is what should be done to curb this behaviour and bring back respect to the education profession.
Azania Mosaka spoke to Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi on what he thinks the solution is and what has gone wrong.
The reality is that the respect we used to give to educators is no longer there. We have a society that no longer respects an educator.Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng education MEC
A society that used to drive their own car now has to be in a taxi with the same learner and therefore there is no respect.Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng education MEC
Respect for that profession has diminished and has diminished badly.Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng education MEC
During our times we had soccer and Netball. Now there is TV and social media and their influence is huge.Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng education MEC
