Gauteng: Circular on Corporal Punishment
The NAPTOSA Schools’ Office reported in Communication 14 of 2014 that the GDE had issued two Circulars with the same number. One of these was Circular 3: Prohibition of Corporal Punishment in Public Schools.
The GDE has amended this circular and re-issued it as No 4 of 2014. The amendments have made no material difference to the content of the previous circular and have not addressed our concerns – NAPTOSA will continue to pursue the matter with the GDE.
