Kindergarten Teacher Commands a Class of 29 Children to Take Turns Hitting Little Girl
Reader tip: While Weifang Changle County Chengguan Street 6-year-old Le Le was attending class at a kindergarten there, because she had talked during class, the teacher had the class of 29 children take turns punching Le Le 10 times each, causing a large bruise to appear on Le Le’s back. Up to now, Le Le is afraid to go to school, and the teacher who commanded the students to punch her hasn’t shown up since either.
Under her mother and this reporter’s encouragement, Le Le described what happened. That day during music class, Ms. Bi was playing the piano on the platform. A classmate took Le Le’s eraser, Le Le asked him for it, but wouldn’t give it back. Ms. Bi came down off the platform, accused Le Le of talking in class, and ordered the whole class to hit her, 10 punches for each person. There were 32 children in the class and apart from two children who didn’t hit her, the other students all punched her 10 times each.
After Le Le left the hospital, Mrs. Hao [Le Le’s mother] has been asking the kindergarten how they’re going to deal with this hitting incident, never imagining that the kindergarten principal would not pay any more visits after the one visit to the hospital. What more, even when Mrs. Hao and her husband went to the kindergarten, the relevant person in charge of the kindergarten would not see them nor would the kindergarten principal be reached by phone. So Mrs. Hao sought the Changle County Education Bureau where one of the bureau’s staff workers said the teacher who had commanded the whole class of children to hit Le Le has already been fired, but she has already gone into hiding and couldn’t be found.
On the morning of August 7, this reporter reached kindergarten principal Yan on the phone. Upon learning this reporter’s identity [as a reporter], the principal immediately hung up. Afterwards, the reporter contacted Changle County Education Bureau and one of the bureau staff workers told this reporter that a the disciplinary decision had already been made regarding the person involved. When this reporter asked what the decision was, this staff member told the reporter to contact the news spokesman of the bureau, Secretary Guo, but this Secretary Guo’s phone could never be reached.
While this reporter was doing this interview, at 19:37 on August 6, the Changle County Police Bureau posted a message through their official weibo: “July 11, we received a report concerning kindergarten student Le Le was hit and injured. The district police station immediately dispatched police officers to investigate. Through investigation, this teacher used disguised corporal punishment on the student causing slight injury, violating the relevant regulations of the Teachers Law of the Peoples Republic of China, and was then handed over to Education Administration Department. July 14, the Education Administration Department dismissed this teacher from work.”
Comments from Sina:
Got fired and that’s it? That’s letting her off too easy, isn’t it? If it was my child who got hit, I’d definitely get her back 10x worse! She’d be lucky if I don’t rip off all of her clothes.
Can’t let it go just like this, [she] should be convicted of intentionally injury.
A dismissal I’m afraid isn’t enough, the teacher should probably be sentenced, and the kindergarten should pay compensation.
Find that teacher, beat her up, and if the teacher can’t be found, beat up the kindergarten principal, go all out even if it means being jailed a few days.
Crows are black the world over, if reporters hadn’t gotten involved, the matter wouldn’t have had any resolution.
Only got fired and that’s it??? This kind of sicko will harm people wherever they go!!!
Is this girl’s father a man or not??? Go turn this woman [the teacher] into a prostitute…
Should’ve arrested her and punished her for child abuse. Should’ve had her locked up in prison for a few years.
First kill the kindergarten principal, then kill the teacher who commanded the beating.
Sue the teacher and the kindergarten, she has already committed the crime of child abuse!
This kind of person should be taken out and shot! Damn sicko!
Damn it, just wait until this child grows up and see if she gets you back. The word “teacher” truly is tarnished by you, no self-restraint.
Have the school look at the teacher’s file~~ only after going to her home, dragging her out, and beating her up will the anger be sated~~!! Heng!?? Trying to dispose of the matter with a mere dismissal… not going to be that easy.
It’s [the parent's fault that they] don’t have relatives who have power and influence. Nowadays, either you have money, or know people, because with either, you can commit murder and no one will bother you, what a garbage society.
This kind of bitch should be killed. The childhood of the entire class of children has been ruined by this beast.
Just let it go like this? What would you do if your children were hit like this! What would you do?! Huh?! Is this how you officials are supposed to act?!
If it was your child who got hit by other children under the command of the teacher and the teacher got fired, then I wouldn’t mind, neither. To just get fired, with no other consequences. But from a different angle, if I was the mother of the child, I’d insist on that person apologizing.
This kind of teacher has no morals, no virtue, so of course she’s also unfit to be a teacher.
You’re not going to arrest her? Or are there no laws and rules there?!
So they think a dismissal is enough to make this problem go away? Has this person not broken the law and doesn’t need to be sentenced? How should causing physical and psychological harm to a 6-year-old girl be handled? Is compensation not necessary?
