Gauteng's Department of Education has expelled the student arrested on camera and attacked a teacher, threw a brick on him and kicked him at special school Albertina Sisulu.
The department expelled the student on Friday saying that his behavior could not be tolerated and that it was important that the teacher do his work freely without being threatened.
"The teacher's safety can not be compromised because of a student," said the department.
In the video, the visually scary teacher can be seen from the furious students. The student grabs a brick and throws it on the teacher. The teacher falls and while he is on the ground, the student kicks him.
The teacher is able to get up and start running.
One of female teachers asks the student: "What's your problem?". He answers, "I've been patient with him for a long time, today he's coming."
When she tries to stop him from going after the teacher, he tells her, "Mom, leave me alone".
Another female teacher grabs him, but he turns out of his grip and begins to run. The three female teachers, including a recording, can be heard and say that the police must be called.
With the pupil warm on his heels, the teacher tries to fly, but falls again. Finally, three men grab the pupil and lead him away from the teacher.

Gauteng Department of Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi, said proudly that the perpetrator is a special needs student, he will never be allowed back to school.
"There is no room for violence in our schools. We strongly condemn the violent behavior of both teachers and teachers. The department issues issues of learning discipline in a very serious light and does not hesitate to take appropriate measures to correct the behavior of the students, including those included in the school with teachers with special education. "
"There is no justification for violence and misconduct," said Lesufi.
The 18-year-old teacher is now participating in a winding up program, anger and change sessions.
"The security of educators, students and everyone in our schools must always be guaranteed. The students never return to school, but an alternative school will be obtained after him after completing education."
