Teachers to face government wrath over child violence in schools

Government to cancel licenses of teachers over child violence in schools

Government will start cancelling licenses of teachers over child violence in schools.

This is after the findings from national survey on violence against children pointed at teachers as the worst perpetrators of child violence in the country.

Releasing the results this morning, the commissioner children and youth affairs at the ministry of gender labour and social development, Mondo Kyateeka, said despite having a law against corporal punishment in place, teachers have continued to physically and sexually abuse children.

He noted that the gender ministry and that of education are working to ensure that such teachers are kicked out of the school environment.
