Clarissa Venter, the African teacher who was caught in the video when she slapped a ninth grader, will return to work in her second term, it turned out Friday.
Venter, 34, stabbed a student after the boy pushed her during a collision on a book at the SunSouth Girls' High School in Cape Town.
They have brought charges against the others, and their criminal cases are being handled by the Weinberg Magistrate's Court.
Jessica Schlumber, a spokeswoman for the Western Cape Education MEC Debbie Schäfer, said that the disciplinary process against Venter had ended.
"The school's governing body has confirmed its decision that the teacher is getting good, final sessions of warning and anger management," she said.
Schlumber said they would not issue a statement as Venter would appoint an SGB – not working department.
Vanter is expected to return to work on April 2. Her criminal case was postponed until April 18 for further investigation.
At the beginning of the month she announced whether the student had decided to remove her child from school. The school wished her "good in her academic journey."
News 24 reported that the student legal office – representing the student – said that the decision stems from concern for her safety "in light of the unfair and illegal treatment she is subjected to."
The student's mother once said that on the day of her daughter's disciplinary hearing, just before she started, the school principal advised her to move her daughter to another school.
