Letlhogonolo Ditsebe started this petition to Community Members, learners, NGOs, Teachers, Unions, student Movements, LRC Members, SGBs

Violence in South African schools is on the raise yet the Department of Education has shown no interests by taking decisive actions to resolve the matter.

On daily basis lives are lost. When learners leave for school parents are awaiting the call to fech thier children corpse along side the road. Or thier children is on the way to ICU. The department has promised to strengthen relationships with SAPS which seems to be missing in action with no patrols around school premises

In 2015 COSAS under Khulekani Skosana launched a call for department to hire well trained security officers or consider asking SAPS to atleast appoint 2 officers per school during school hours. But the call has fell on death ears. And still no alternative solution was implemented.

With violence on the raise I call on SGBs, community members ,Teachers,learners, Unions, Student Organisations and the LRCs to declare schools crime scenes and treat them as such by staying away from schools on 1st November 2019 for National Day of Action against school violence and force the department to act immediately as this act of terror is taking away lives of the future generation and Teachers.
