For China’s Students, a Wrong Answer Could Mean Getting Slapped
Posted on November 9, 2012
The Chinese has long been known for their excellence in the academic arena, particularly in mathematics. Chinese children are strictly trained to solve math problems. One teacher in China, however, takes things way too far in trying to shape her students.
In a small school in China, it was recorded on camera how the teacher violently slapped and hit her students. Apparently, the reason for hitting her students is because they did not manage to answer the math problems correctly.
A 5-year-old girl was slapped 70 times, causing her face to swell for a few days.
When the video made it to the news, quite a number of citizens were in a rage over what the teacher had done.
No one in his or her right mind would hit someone for not getting the correct answer to a math problem. The fact that she is a teacher makes her actions even more unforgivable. Teachers are trained to educate and teach until their students understand the subject matter, not to hit them.
