Views on School Violence by Stakeholders of Four Schools in Nkangala District of Education, South Africa
AbstractThe increase of violence in South African schools puts school managers under enormous amount of pressure of ensuring the safety of learners under their care. This paper used mixed methods. Data were collected through questionnaires and semi- structured interviews. The study reviewed findings of the bigger project that investigated the dynamic of violence in South African schools, with the view of exploring views of stakeholders regarding school violence. The paper argued that the measures to curb violence would work best when they are generated not only by school staff, but also by parents, representatives from community organizations and learners. School managers therefore cannot win the battle of school violence alone; they would need the involvement of all the stakeholders to ensure that schools are safe environments where learners can receive a high quality education without fear. The study concluded by suggesting measures that school can be used to curb school violence.
