1.0 Background of Cause The existence of school bullying in every school is tough to be eliminated. Bullying is defined as a repeating act of treating people in an aggressive and violent way to show their strengths and power. Making the victim unable to defend themselves and listen to what the bully says. (Rigby, 2002). Bullying can be in the form of verbal, psychological or physical attacks towards the victim, making them to experience fear towards the bully.
Sexual assault can be in a form of fondling of unwanted sexual touching, forcing a victim to perform sexual acts such as oral sex or penetrating the victim’s body and torturing a person in a sexual manner. Sexual assault can either be verbal, physical or visual. Joan Van Niekers cited a recent report by the Human Sciences Research Council which revealed that 34% of learners experienced sexual harassment and other 14% were sexually harassed by teachers , therefore this clearly illustrates that sexual assault take place amongst learners in schools is somehow beyond control and happens in many occasions. In this essay, three causes of sexual assault
Some schools have gone further by enacting the same force with all weapons, drugs, and violence. Zero- tolerance policies also have big problems associated with them. When kids get expelled and they’re not in school any longer, they are on the streets getting in more trouble than they ever could at school. The major problem is inconsistent application and misinterpretation of the policies, when the policies are suddenly announced leaving no room for administrators judgment or students due-process rights(Guidance

This teaching leads to major issues towards homosexuals in schools. Everyone from teachers to caretakers may show discrimination towards homosexual students and teachers while in school. South Africa was ‘ on of the very first countries in the world to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and has one of the most progressive constitutions along with other legislation that outlaws discrimination based on sexual orientation in the workplace, and legalises same-sex marriages. Homophobic bullying in schools can be problematic in a number of ways: Children who experience this bullying have their education disrupted. They are unable to concentrate on lessons because of feelings of fear or anger.
Sexual assault amongst learners in South African schools is escalating despite the measures placed by the Department of Education to solve these cases. According to newspaper reports between 1999 to 2004, female sexual assaults posed as a problematic issue in South African schools. Females whom were raped were above 30%. In addition, (Harbour, 2010) research conducted in 2010 by the Human Sciences Research Council has shown that 34% of pupils have endured sexual assualts from their peers at school. Therefore sexual assault can be seen as a problematic issue in schools.
I am currently working at two elementary schools and fortunately, sexual harassment is not a prevalent issue on campus. I think that if there were any sexual harassment-like behavior, I think it would be similar to the news report concerning the six-year-old student who was suspended for sexual harassment. In that situation, it was more a student not knowing appropriate boundaries or behavior at school rather than sexual harassment. Many students in an elementary setting do not even know what sex is let alone sexual harassment and I think it can and would be traumatizing to put that label on that type of behavior if it is unknowingly done. I am fully aware that there are exceptions to this, especially regarding sexual harassment between adults and students, and it is certainly important to be aware of the laws under Title IX and always be alert and tuned into the behaviors and actions of students, no matter their age.
5.13.5. Availability of drugs and community surrounding the schools The interviewed School administrators complained that it was taxing for them to control drug or substance use among pupils due to the availability of substances in some localities where schools were situated. This situation was witnessed by the researcher of this study whereby in almost all visited schools in the Dar es Salaam, 80 percent of schools were situated/located around slams and shanty areas. This finding was supported by the Government published report (2012) and Medicin Du Monde report (2011) both of which indicated these areas to be the most affected zones with a large numbers of drug users and addicts. The school management claimed that it was hard to handle drug use among pupils if the surrounding communities or school neighbours were conducting
