With students like this, who still dares to be a teacher/educator?!
What big shot is that sitting with his feet up on the side? The teacher next to you is dead now and you’re still able to take off your shoes and put your feet up?
This was caused by society.
How can teachers supposed to manage/deal with students in the future?
Why can’t people just admit there’s discrimination in education?

You are just a smack-talker [complainer, whiner]! Stick to the topic, don’t TM always cynically conflate and broaden!
The general mood [atmosphere, environment] of society isn’t good, combined with the fact that most of the games teenagers play are full of violence, murdering everyday.

And in games, the younger the kids, the more arrogant they are.
This teacher can be considered to have been diligent and responsible [a good teacher]. The murderer should be severely punished!
Such a tragedy for this teacher. First he’s killed by a student, and then immediately following in another picture, an asshole puts his feet up almost on the dead teacher’s face. Sigh! Speechless.
Comments from Sina:
Ever since the reform and opening up, our education [system] had already gradually found itself on the wrong path. Patriotic education and moral ideology education have been abandoned, while the minds of our countrymen and especially those of teenagers are filled with power, money, and pretty girls. If it goes on like this, our 5000-year-old Chinese civilization will inevitably be lost.
The tragedy of Chinese education! Teachers are merely the implementers of education! Think just what exactly is the root [of this]? If everyone holds the thought that teachers deserve to die, then why still go to school? Why still get an education?
Education is a product of society, and an unfair society will inevitably produce an unfair education [system]. Giving gifts to teachers is a result of parents being influenced by the common practice in society, simply wanting to spend a bit of money to get some privileges for their children. Nowadays, with the media filled everywhere with so-called news [designed] to attract eyeballs, everywhere reporting the various problems involving teachers, and not transmitting the positive energy of “respecting teachers and morality”, it just proves a truth even more, that among the people within the so-called system, those who have the least power, who are the easiest to bully, and who have the lowest social status are teachers! A society that doesn’t even respect teachers is a dirty society filled with the filth of money, power, and carnal desires. And to look at some people’s comments, just who’s tragedy is this?
Scumbags like you people never know how to be grateful. Teachers who are strict simply deserve to die? When your parents are strict, why don’t you kill your parents?
Today’s teachers are in the teeth of the storm, where isolated individual bad things are exaggerated without limit. The student killed the teacher because of being too strict, but do you people know why it is necessary to be so strict? It’s because society is pushing teachers for results! The biggest problem must be in the family education [upbringing] of the murdering student, otherwise that teacher would have died how many hundreds of times already. Don’t unfairly generalize the phenomena of some teachers accepting gifts [bribes for preferential treatment] and providing additional tutoring [for a cost] onto all teachers!
Today’s students truly don’t know good from bad.
Don’t know why [people] nowadays hold a grudge against everything.
Some teachers are quite prejudiced/discriminator, so [some students] hold repress grievances. When I was in high school, my political education teacher skipped over me when handing out test papers. I was so angry at the time that I confronted him and he said there weren’t enough test papers. You tell me, was I not supposed to be angry!?
What do you think? Do news reports like this lead you to blame students, teachers, or society in general?
