Government to cancel licenses of teachers who violet children in schools
- Government says it will cancel licenses of teachers over child violence in schools.
- This is after findings from national survey on violence against children pointed at teachers as the worst perpetuators of child violence in the country.
- Releasing the results yesterday, the commissioner children and youth affairs at the ministry of gender labour and social development Mondo Kyateeka says despite having a law against corporal punishment in place, teachers have continued to physically and sexually abuse children.
- He notes the gender ministry and that of education are working to ensure that such teachers are kicked out of the school environment.
