SAHRC Warns Against Corporal Punishment

There are still schools that administer corporal punishment despite it being illegal, says SAHRC chair

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) is concerned that there are still schools that administer corporal punishment despite it being illegal.
 
The rights body says that the practice is contrary to the country's constitution and international human rights standards.

Addressing the opening of its two-day conference on the subject at Parktown in Johannesburg, SAHRC chairperson, Lawrence Mushwana, says corporal punishment in schools infringes on the right of a learner to basic education.
