Drugs at schools, bullying and abuse of learners by educators and even abuse of educators by learners has featured prominently in the press and social media lately which is why Whistleblowing in schools is becoming an increasing need.

“Schools are no different to companies when it comes to ethics and all who operate in the framework thereof. The brand and public image is also important to all who represent it” says Dale Horne, Operations Director of Whistle Blowers (Pty) Ltd, an Ethics SA approved company that has, for 15 years, protected whistleblowers and is receiving more and more enquiries from schools and/or educational institutions regarding whistleblowing in schools.

Universities and Technikons have offered students whistleblowing facilities for some time now but schools have been slow to react until recently as Whistle Blowers has seen a spike in enquiries from learners and parents.
