In South Africa, school-based violence takes on many dimensions. Being involved in school violence can mean being a perpetrator or a victim, but it can also mean being a witness to the violence, which in itself can be psychologically damaging. Both learners and educators need to be provided with a safe learning and work environment. MIET AFRICA has just developed and designed the South African College of Educators’ (SACE) Teachers’ Safety and Security in South African Schools: A Handbook – a user-friendly reference for educators on information on their rights and responsibilities regarding violence in schools; how to protect him/ herself in violent situations in the school environment; and most importantly, what action to take to decrease the risk of violence against every member of the school community, both near, or in, schools and classrooms.
